About the work
Elizabeth Gilfilen
American, b. 1974
Follow

With their wild bursts of color and intuitive, gestural lines, Elizabeth Gilfilen’s vivacious paintings exist in the tradition of New York School action painters such as Jackson Pollock. She employs swaths of colors, bold brushstrokes, and sinewy lines, applying them with loose painterly gestures that palpably reflect the artist’s hand. Her work paradoxically reflects a simultaneous sense of control and restraint: her color schemes cohere into complementary and almost logical systems, while her compositions display an acute understanding of positive and negative space.
