Spontaneity of Expression: Elizabeth Schuppe

8 Aug

Sometimes, there is just nothing I love better than staring at a painting thick with color, line and texture.  The work of Brooklyn artist Elizabeth Schuppe‘s abstract work practically sings with spontaneous marks, expressive color and light.

Take Three, acrylic on canvas, 70×65

True to the Abstract Expressionist style, Schuppe works intuitively, without a forethought plan, allowing the placement of color and line to speak to her, directing the brush in her hand.

Hard Hearted IV, acrylic on canvas, 44×46

Each painting tells a story created from the artist’s emotional expression, yet in their abstract nature, we are still able to interpret their story in our own fashion.

    Mmm, watching these feels like feeding the soul. The paintings remind me of a weird mix of emotions. Intense anger mixed with so much joy you almost explode. Love it!
