> DESCRIPTION

Chicago area artist Elsa Muñoz paints still settings and meditative moments in time, suggesting something has just transpired, or that a new sequence of events is about to unfold. At times eerie, the work reflects her personal exploration and interpretation of the chiaroscuro technique-an approach where the shadow itself acts as a dominant character in the scene.

"These works are as much about what is plainly revealed in light as they are about what is concealed in darkness...
The relationship between light and shadow as metaphors."
- ELSA MUÑOZ
