Local Artist in Residence: Elisa Gomez @ Randall Barn

Elisa Gomez received her BFA with an emphasis in painting from the University of Utah in 2010. She has been involved in multiple shows across the country and recently completed an artists demonstration at the Denver Art Museum. Primarily in mixed media on canvas, Elisa Gomez wields her materials with the skill of a practiced fine artist while nonetheless composing her canvases with the ease of a studied art historian. Evidenced by a few discernible, well-executed, and discrete operations, her working mode transposes the schema and aesthetic of both European and American Abstract Expressionism with a studied sensitivity particular to her training and practice. Gomez demonstrates a playful attention to color, texture, and surface. Palette and visual movement between, amongst, and across forms figure heavily into her pieces. In style as well as composition, Gomez’s work is replete with recurrent aesthetic maneuvers and nonetheless peppered with extensive variation and experimentation. Her canvases continue to surprise and delight the viewer in their transposition of elements across genres and movements.”
