Charter Oak Cultural Center is excited to announce House of Love- Prayers For the Earth- paintings by Elisabeth Moss.
Elisabeth Moss has been creating visual expressions since childhood. Her exhibit “House Of Love- Prayers For The Earth” was inspired by a watercolor she made at the age of 7- presaging the spiritual nature of her art making today.
In the forty years since graduating from The Rhode Island School of Design, her painting has unfolded into a quiet listening or felt prayer.
Says Moss, “ The paintings seem to feel their own way onto the paper or canvass and my job is to let them. The imagery in my work comes through a felt shaping that feels wholly offered and not predetermined.”
Painting continues to be a primary teacher for her in the art of letting go and trusting the intuitive beauty voice within.
Elisabeth’s painting evokes a sense of freedom, and Divine tranquility through the use of images from nature and symbols of embrace. Her harmonious – and sometimes hypnotic use of pattern, layered collage, and overpainting interplay with the simple forms of undulating hills, open hands and human forms.
Elisabeth Moss facilitates Expressive Art workshops at her studio in Avon and throughout Connecticut
