Ele Pack

Ele PackEle Pack: “The subject matter of my work is the paint itself, and the language that is created. I believe the language of paint affects us deeply, and moves us. I try to create work that activates the senses,  and lifts and elevates the viewer. Perhaps it’s easier to understand, if thinking of it like music or poetry. Allow yourself to respond the painting on a sensory level. To “feel” it.  Using pattern and mark to create rhythm, I use a range of materials; paint, pencil, fabric, collage, metallics, and build up my paintings in a very organic way. I overlay layers of paint, mark and collage to build up the pictorial space. This creates glimpses, hidden spaces, things half? shown, suggested. I use delicate layers of texture, drawing and colour to create an ambiguous space. The image is then worked and re?worked until the image is “found”. Only when a balance and integration is achieved I feel that the painting is finished. There is no fixed narrative, and I like to think of them as “visual poems”. With hints and glimpses of the natural world. The subject of the paintings is primarily the sensory language and what it evokes.”

Ele Pack was born in 1969 and received her degree from Loughborough College of Art. She now lives and works in Brighton. She has exhibited her paintings both nationally, and internationally.
