Boston & Beyond, landscapes by Claire Elliott
Elliott is currently a M.F.A. Candidate at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts. She received her under graduate degree in2007 from the French Skidmore College (Cum Laude, Honors in Studio Art, Periclean Society, Pi Delta Phi). She has exhibited her work in Philadelphia, Seattle Washington and Boston and her paintings are in several private collections.
Her landscapes are rich in color and have a strong, powerful; sense of forms. The paintings are direct and deliberate yet have a lyrical narrative quality.
”Each time we access a memory it is recreated in order to be available for the future; because of this, recollections can become fragile, combined, and fluid. With this in mind, I am attempting to define and communicate the lucidity and ambiguity of my memories.”
- Claire Elliott
The exhibition will be on display August 12 - September 20, 2013
