About the Artist: Elise Mendelle
Becoming Part of the Emerging Art World
Art for me is about capturing a moment in time and expanding that moment; by looking beyond the painting, I try to capture a thought, feeling or emotion so the viewer can explore and anticipate what comes next.
I took up painting while on maternity leave years ago and have gone from strength to strength. My art career has grown organically, and is a great source of excitement and pleasure for me. I am inspired by beautiful people and places; expressions have more than meets the eye and places can immediately transport you. I feel that I can express myself through my art and have a space and time that is solely for me, my thoughts, and my creativity.
I have recently exhibited at Artrooms in Rome! Being selected from over 900 applicants, I was thrilled to be selected and take part in this fantastic exhibition in such an inspiring city. I have also had part of my collection featured recently at a gallery in Venice and enjoyed a place at the New Artist Fair in 2018, at the vibrant and busy Old Truman Brewery.
One of my previous pieces was also selected for the Artsdepot Open from a large number of Barnet artists, and I was very pleased to have a painting of mine chosen to be exhibited locally!
