Elvira M. Dayel
My preffered medium is dry pastel on paper, I am mastering and constantly challenging myself with this medium. I also paint. I prefer large scale, I always feel like there is not enought space on a piece of paper or canvas to "say" everything I want to.
Instead of a full artist statement, which you can read on my website (www.elvira-artist.com), I would like to capture a thought about one of the works presented in this portfolio: esrevinu travelers: She Is Bridge. Here goes it:
A woman of landscape -
She acts as a bridge.
A bridge to a steep, deep
Canyon - the way to escape & a way to connect
To view the abstracted & the city's landscape.
She holds it together with her body, her flesh.
She holds them together: the edges, the earth;
She lays in the landscape relaxed yet steadfast.
For me, she is larger than I,
For her, she is taller than sky,
For them she is deeper than emerald, green, grey, blue & the high.
