Elise Ansel
Elise Ansel, Revelations II, Oil on Linen

2016

US$7,500

About

Oil on Linen 61 x 45.7 cm 24 x 18 in. ----- Ansel deconstructs pictorial language and authorial agency in order to excavate and liberate meanings buried beneath the surface of the works from which her paintings spring. Old Master paintings were, for the most part, created by men for men. Abstraction allows her to interrupt this one sided narrative and transform it into a sensually capacious non-narrative form of visual communication that embraces multiple points of view. The title of the exhibition yes I said Yes is carved from the last line of the final Molly Bloom/Penelope chapter of James Joyce’s Ulysses, a chapter which gives voice to the novel’s most conspicuously silent character. Ansel’s project of translating classical works into a contemporary language is inspired by Ulysses; slicing words from this text manifests the transformative energy, the sparagmos, the tearing apart, weaving, unraveling, and re-weaving that is the heart of her activity.
