Elissa Dorfman Artist Bio:
ELISSA DORFMAN Artist Statement - My main emphasis has been to create my own way of painting. I had the basics, but went into new areas by instinct. I painted Egyptian paintings in the early 1970s. Then I worked on paintings I call Consciousness Art. For example, portraying how the land and water looked 100 years ago compared to today. There was a period in which I painted Native American Indian Art and learned about their culture. From the early 1970s I developed my own style that I called Expansionism. Beginning of Expansionism by Elissa Dorfman Description: From the early 1970's I developed my own style that I called Expansionism--everything I sense I expand (that certain something, hunch, instinct, thoughts, feelings, emotions, beliefs). The inner dynamics (the inner world) of the subject expand beyond its outward appearance, and into the environment (divine matrix, the field, nature's mind, mind of god, quantum hologram). Two places science got it wrong. 1. The space we believe is empty is really not. It is full of a living material, pulsating essence. 2. We may experience inside of our bodies that influence the world beyond through the conduit in this space. Then I went into Scientific paintings of molecules, genes, cells, etc. My whole life, I have worked on color combinations and strived to perfect my technique. I am about to enter another phase of my career. I create art because I feel the need to and enjoy it. Elissa is in many private collections throughout the world.
