"Abstract expressionist paintings influenced by my ever changing natural surroundings"
“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, most notably “Terrain” in San Francisco- a show based on pieces painted while traveling across the Western U.S. for eight months. 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.”
Elizabeth Miller, Ph. D. UCSD
Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

"acrylic paint is my favorite as it allows me to work freely, without as much concern about chemicals when I'm using my hands etc, but still can have the same thick texture as oil paints."

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"I hope people are drawn to look closer at the layers and feel inclined to stay a moment- each piece is different and expressions from a point in time, I hope people feel whatever comes naturally to them. There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to abstract work- it is open to interpretation."
-- Elisa Gomez Art
Q&A

What motivates and inspires you?

"I am motivated by my need to express myself, daily and inspired by my musical background and love for the outdoors. I grew up near the mountains in a very musically inclined family and those things have continued to push my practice."

Q&A

What makes a space special?

"A space is special when it houses memories or items that move you. It could be family pictures, a small trinket you bought on a special vacation or was a gift from a loved one, or a painting that spoke to you when you first saw it. It's not about how many things, but the story of the things you have."
-- Elisa Gomez Art
Q&A

What’s unique about your work?

"My work is composed of many colorful textures and layers, I often use my bare hands to apply the paint and work lines into the wet paint as I'm going. The pieces are often very fluid and lively with gestural movement across the canvas."
-- Elisa Gomez Art
Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I love to use my bare hands as a means of applying the paint- throwing it on or just spreading it aggressively makes the expression much more real to me."
-- Elisa Gomez Art
Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"I learned through travels that my favorite place to paint, even the large pieces, is outdoors- on the grass, in the dirt, hanging from a tree, anywhere outside> I thought it might be challenging but once I tried it I found it to be the most rewarding!"
