ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Elisa Rossi is an artist based in Los Angeles and uses different mediums (oil, acrylic, charcoal, pastels) to create expressive artworks that fluctuate between figuration and abstraction.
Elisa was raised and born in Carpi, Italy, where she received formal classical piano training and art education since age 5. After earning a Master's Degree in International Relations in 2010 from L.U.I.S.S. Guido Carli university, she lived in Belgrade, Berlin and Brussels while pursuing a career in public affairs. During those years, she was in parallel cultivating her visceral, ever-present passion for visual arts, with a focus on human rights, social justice and spirituality..
She now uses painting to explore the symbiotic relationship between the subconscious mind and the artistic output. Carl G. Jung’s work ‘The Red Book’ deeply impacted her in approaching this area of research along with 'The Soul Code. In search of character and calling' written by James Hillman.
She lives her art as a vehicle to authentically deepening her inner investigation while establishing an emotional connection with the audience and has developed a peculiar, original visual language that evokes dreamlike, metaphysical worlds, childlike strokes combined with exploration of the human body, natural elements and sensorial themes.
Paradox and synesthesia drive her creative flow as she can't separate the process of painting from music.
