Elise Wagner

The narrative that I take with my work combines existing contrasts found in nature and science in an attempt to distill the unknown, unseen and incomprehensible into visual art.

Two underlying concepts that have always dwelled in my creative consciousness and have motivated me to continue creating art, are the human impulse for order amidst the indifference of nature, and how we as humans have impacted nature and the environment.

My studio practice is fluid and multidisciplinary and explores the contradictions between chaos, the indifference of nature and the human impulse to comprehend through exploration. Using three mediums, encaustic, oil painting and printmaking, the work weaves a continuous thread. I work as if I am navigating an uncharted path, facilitating a conversation between all disciplines.
