Artist and Flutist Elise Wood Exhibits in South Carolina

Elise Wood

Elise Wood, the daughter of two writers and niece of a fine arts painter, has always lived in an artistic environment.  Both her talent in music and art were recognized at an early age, and she was selected to be in exhibits and perform throughout her education.  She has attended classes at the Art Students League and the City College of New York and continues to expand her knowledge of mediums and availing herself of live models and museum trips with professors and students.    She has exhibited nationally including Blue Skies Gallery in Hampton, VA; Cornelia Street Café, Theater for the New City and Jadite Gallery, in New York; and North End Trilogy Gallery in New Jersey. Currently her paintings in acrylic or oil on canvas are on exhibit at Salt Gallery in Beaufort, SC.

An accomplished flutist, she is an active member of the New York Jazz Flutet, a six-flute jazz ensemble that includes an instrumentation from contra-bass flute to piccolo with drums. She recorded frequently with her late partner John Hicks on HiWood Records, among others.

Artist Statement

As an artist I try to surround my work with an aura – despite the subject matter and to draw out the subtleties of light and shadow and the colors therefore produced.   Texture inspires the flow of the paint that holds together the form.  My subject matter is parallel with my fantasy of isolating a moment of beauty in time and space.
