Porter Hall Gallery
January 3-30 Elizabeth Sage
I am Elizabeth Sage.
After 20+ years of working in the corporate field of graphic design, my dream came true to follow my passion and commit to full time fine arts. Now, it is not only my occupation, it has become my identity.
I have always been focused on creating powerful imagery and building a strong sense of connection between the soul and it’s surroundings, to elicit a sense of wonder and interaction that moves beyond what we think we see, to what “could be”. My life is my art and my art is my life. There is no separation between the two and it has taken me years to accept this fully. In this acceptance, I have found the gift of creativity, which is to both give and receive. Creativity is not owned by anyone, it is an energy that moves within each of us.
By combining the rich and vibrant colors of the natural world, rusted and aged textures of the unnatural, with fine precision and detail of an imagined world, my hope is that within several fundamentally different styles and techniques, you will find depth and meaning beyond the obvious.
My paintings take weeks to create, up to 12 layers of the finest available museum quality oils and resins, gold, silver, and copper guild that continues around all sides of the finest quality museum wrapped canvas, giving option to framing or simply hang on the wall as it is. As a painting nears completion, I begin to understand what it is to be named and it’s meaning to me. Each painting is accompanied with an inscription on the back of my personal thoughts, always aware that to the eye of each beholder, it’s meaning may differ.
While my works currently hang in both corporate offices and galleries, new media and social networking are essential to my success as a fine artist. I use tools like facebook and the web to share my passion, meet new clients and establish my reputation as a fine artist. More importantly, I use them to connect on a more personal level. If not in person, I look forward to meeting you within one of these venues.
