Hotel Vandivort – Art Walk Sponsor

Hotel Vandivorta proud Art Walk sponsor, presents October Featured Artist Elizabeth Chapman

Artist Statement: “As an abstract expressionist artist, I paint intuitively. For me, intuitive painting is kind of like going on a trip with vague plans—or maybe no plans at all. I’m deeply inspired by music, but sometimes I paint without it, dancing to my own song as I place colors and lines on the canvas. Whether I paint abstracts, florals, or people, each painting merges my experiences and memories, and it’s all in response to the beauty I see. I’m often asked how long it takes me to complete a painting, to which I respond, “All my life!” And the journey is pure adventure!

“My upbringing was full of adventure, too, with my childhood split between two distinct and influential cultures. Born in Caracas, Venezuela, I moved to rural Missouri as a girl, from the city to the country. Even though I’ve now spent most of my life in the United States, I still feel strong ties to Hispanic culture, and I attribute my love of color to my Spanish heritage: My paintings have been described as bold, lively, and vivid, with a complexity of layers.”

Note: Hotel Vandivort is an Early Bird and a Night Owl Art Walk location: Open 24-7-365
