Elisa Berry Fonseca
My work is an investigation into my experience of the landscape. The forms I make out of steel or wood or felt are drawings in space, hanging precariously and seemingly in flux. I am inspired by trees in the winter in Minnesota, fall leaves in Connecticut, the hoodoos, canyons and spires of the Southwest, and stalagmites and stalactites hidden underground in caves. The energetic gestures I create are the result of my desire to see the landscape come alive, as if these forms were living beings transformed by their encounter with art.
