Elissa Gore

Elissa paints rural landscapes in oil, pastel and watercolor. Two forces drive her painting; her passion for nature and her desire to communicate. She wants the viewer to share her experience of a particular place and the ever changing light that envelops it. She is interested in perception and understanding. Therefore, she sometimes uses a panoramic format to immerse the viewer. Other times, she divides the panorama into a sequence of images to mirror the fragmented quality of perception.
