Elise Black


 

 

EliseBlack-Headshot-1Elise Black is a multi-media artist residing in Westport, Ct. Her inspiration comes from a multitude of sources including nature as well as man-made materials and objects. Working in many mediums allows for a cross-pollination of ideas and concepts…. many resulting in visually engaging, textural and dimensional works of art.

Her work as an illustrator and designer in the fashion industry in the 1980’s is reflective in her handling of her works on canvas…some have sewn panels and elements, others may employ the use of sequins, rhinestones, glass, rubber, yarn and many other unconventional materials.

Her assemblages and sculptures are mixed media creations that are wall-hung and free standing… utilizing found and unconventional objects as well as employing many of her mediums in a single piece of art.

Black’s work appears in corporate and private collections worldwide and is included in the Permanent Art Collection of the town of Westport Ct, as well as the Lower East Side in NYC.

“Every time I step into the studio to weld I am excited at the prospect of making a new sculpture; I look forward to the process. The challenge of taking an industrial product, cutting and fabricating shapes, then welding them together to create a strong, three-dimensional design brings joy to my soul. There is nothing more invigorating than playing with steel.”

B.A. attended two Westchester County colleges, receiving an Associate of Arts degree at Briarcliff College and a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honors in Studio Art with an emphasis in sculpture at Marymount College. B.A. studied welding techniques at Silvermine Art Center, New Canaan with David Boyajian and followed him to his studio at The Sculpture Barn in New Fairfield, Connecticut.

B.A. D’Alessandro has created sculptures in a variety of materials, but has been concentrating on steel for the last twenty years. Steel lends itself well to straight lines, angles and curves; the influence of geometric shapes is apparent in her sculptures. Taking “pre-formed” stock pieces of steel, the artist arranges and organizes them to create strong, balanced structures. Painting them black gives each its own elegance. Adding color in the past few years to selected pieces has given them a new boldness.
