ELISA MCKAY

I work in collage art using fabric, paper, flowers, metal, wood, found objects, photographs and a variety of other items, including acrylic, watercolor and gouache. My images portray family, community, celebration, culture, history and those memories of joy, love, spirituality and all that evokes feeling good. My love for dance is often seen in my work as an aesthetic value representing the life force or spirit within. As the ocean is one body of water, so is the life force one and the same power existing everywhere and within everything. I believe in the oneness of us all, so my images are mostly created without hair or facial features. I love the human body...and I will often create images of the female anatomy, which I know more about than any other. I have not been formally trained, but somehow, I have a feeling for composition and color. My work is often a meditation...a zen experience, if you will. I give thanks for learning and growing with each new art piece that I create.
