Elizabeth Fonacier Artist Bio:

Statement: Art has an ability to manifest the mysterious qualities that constitute our human existence. My attraction to paint as a medium of visual expression shares commonality with my interest in quantum theory. Paint possesses the capacity to facilitate illusion through application process and pigment combination. Similarly, basic quantum theory renders matter an illusionary substance of reality, influenced by our awareness of its presence. Investigating the fabric of illusion, my work brings forth images from the fringe of awareness. Painting as process engages the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual bodies of a person. Transforming the studio to laboratory, I formulate equations by way of documenting experimentations on the fluidity of pigments mixed with assorted painting media and varying amounts of thinner. In this way, image creation relies upon physics, chemistry, and artistic gesture equally. These techniques acquiesce further experimentation of physical action, the energy behind application. Emotional and spiritual insight intuitively guide my conceptual evolution, generating conversations between paint and painter. Nature as the substance of paint and a subject to be painted, endows the greatest purpose to my creative endeavors. Humanity's natural existence is part of the material universe, forming the grounds for endless artistic exploration. Matter is illusive, ever changing, moving and unique to it's moment of perception. Everything physical to nonphysical is influenced by the constant progression of natural forces. My work examines the framework of existence as viewed through human experience. Bio: Elizabeth was born and raised in Western Michigan, where she first developed her connection to the physics and metaphysics of nature. While still attending high school, Elizabeth began her undergraduate studies at Kendall College of Art and Design, an institution with formal and technical educational philosophies. From 2008-2010, Elizabeth studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in affiliation with Tufts University where she concentrated on interdisciplinary and conceptual practices within her work. The Dana Pond Award honorably mentioned her for "Painting I" in 2010. Her work has exhibited at GASP Gallery, ByrneBohem Gallery, with the GreatFruit Collective, NurtureART and continues to exhibit in open studios and events in her area. Elizabeth currently lives and works in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY, where she finds inspiration from the City and through frequent visits the mountainous regions of New York State. www.lizzfonacier.com www.etsy.com/shop/museumshoppe
