Elsa Sroka: Ablaze
January 12th - January 26th, 2019
Opening reception: January 12th, 6-8pm
In this solo comprised of eighteen canvases, Sroka presents a variety of subjects—animals, botanicals and landscapes, all of which exude a forward-thinking, contemporary attitude. This body of work continues to play with vibrancy of color, as well as finding that elusive and delicate balance of additive and subtractive painting. Elsa resumes exploring the role facial expressions of her subjects and the emotional connection to them play in the process of creating the art so undoubtedly Sroka. What emerges from these explorations is a new level of complexity of elements: color, texture, composition, and detail, shifting focus from the sole subject, to the entirety of the painting, and thus, enveloping the viewer with a full sensory experience.
