For the artist, this paper work is a laboratory where she can explore color, mark-making and composition—loosely sketching ideas, combinations and compositions with a sense of freedom and improvisation. This composition was made on 300lb. watercolor paper and coated with the same layered pigmented plaster, pencil marks, silk screening techniques and stencils used in the artist's paintings.

Ferguson’s work is an interpretation, via abstraction, of space and the flexible nature of perception. Exploring pattern and color—along with a range of process-driven approaches and modern materials—the artist creates work at the intersection of painting, sculpture and printmaking. Ferguson's mark-making gestures suggest traces of: mathematical puzzles, alphabetic scripts, geometric variations, clothing patterns, architectural flourishes, logo-grams, musical notations and hieroglyphic writing. The results are beautiful compositions that reflect the artist’s intuitive use of geometry. Ferguson employs an improvisational process of fracturing, degrading and abstracting images to create works that celebrate the irregular and accidental—as well as the beauty of the imperfect.

Elise Ferguson

At the intersection of painting, sculpture and printmaking, Elise Ferguson’s abstract work reveres the purposely imperfect. The artist’s mark-making gestures suggest traces of mathematical puzzles, alphabetic scripts and geometric variations—as well as clothing patterns, architectural flourishes, musical notations and hieroglyphic writing. Ferguson combines pattern and color with a range of process-driven approaches to explore both space and the flexible nature of perception.
