California-based Canadian artist Elyse Dodge is best known for her boldly coloured geometric landscapes. Her distinctive visual language explores the contrast between the abstract and literal, in both form and colour.
Elyse blends the freedom of impressionism with the precision of geometric abstraction - presenting memories of place in a surreal, dreamlike state that draw the viewer into an alternate, simplified world.
Raised in British Columbia, her artist mother and builder father taught her to see the world as form and colour. Elyse now applies that deconstructed perspective to her work, creating fresh and unexpected contemporary landscapes.
