Elena Sisto Presents Her Work

[Elena Sisto Presents Her Work] "Upside Down", 2011, oil on linen
"Upside Down", 2011, oil on linen
Regarding the figures in her paintings Sisto notes that "the characters come out of the paint, the light, and the mood of the light... I observe people carefully; I stare at people on the subway more than I maybe should, and I draw from life. The characters may get too realistic and then too cartoon-ish. I try to find a balance between reality and imagination. I do not want to make a portrait, I want the sense of another consciousness."

 Sisto (b. 1952) received a dual degree from Brown University and RISDE, and also studied at the NewYork Studio School. She has had nineteen one-person shows, and has received numerous grants, prizes and fellowships including two NEA grants, a Yaddo Fellowship and most recently, the 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship, among many many other honors and awards. She is represented by Lori Bookstein Fine Art in New York City

Visiting Artist Elena Sisto will give a presentation of her work on Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 5 pm in the Fisher Studio Arts Building, Seminar Room.

Everyone welcome!
