Elvira Fournier

Mirror, Mirror

Inquire Buy on ARTmine View Catalog

Frenetic staccato strokes and vibrant colors characterize Elvira Fournier’s paintings. Bursts of light and energy flow from every point, displaying Fournier’s exuberant passion for her work. Thickly layered materials create the painterly effect of Fournier’s abstract expressionist pieces. Fournier likes to let her imagination run wild as it propels her across peaks, valleys, spirals, and swarms of existential and spiritual philosophizing. The ‘Deep Jungle’ series baptizes the viewer in splashes, sputtering greens and blues. The Cathedral invites the viewer into another sort of spiritual encounter, throwing violent blues from a technicolor foreground.

With abstraction, Fournier notes that figures “become strange” forcing one to look differently at that which was once familiar. Fournier’s work does just that by filtering her everyday inspirations (her garden, her travels, her mountain town, and her dog) into deeply felt expression: swooping lines and cascading colors confront the eye in a wild flourish. In her work, Fournier asks the viewer to access memories of past lives carried by the soul in a cosmic transcendent journey, like in Soul Resurrection where we see swirling shapes in geometric pageantry flocking the otherworldly scene.

Fournier lives and works in León, where she is able to dedicate herself full-time to her art practice.
