Elisa Contemporary Art presents a new gallery exhibit Poetic Landscapes, featuring the artwork of Canadian Artist, Marie Danielle Leblanc and Syracuse Artist, Sharon Gordon. The exhibit will open on September 28, 2012 and run through November 11, 2012.


In its’ purest form, a Poetic Landscape takes the viewer into an imaginary place. A land created by the artist’s subjective perspective where geography and architecture are morphed and transformed through myth, fantasy, desire, sensation, thought and color.


For Marie Danielle Leblanc, her landscapes are based on worldwide journeys and treks. From Vietnam to Sweden, California to the South of France, all her senses absorb the details of her surroundings. She’ll jot down a note, a fleeting thought or a word, take a picture, and collect images and sensations.  Marie Danielle transforms these landscapes into poetic worlds through acrylic, oil, ink, resin, tar and other natural materials.


Sharon Gordon’s oil landscapes draw each viewer into an imaginary world where personal and unique interpretations are evoked. Her paintings form a kind of tone poem. Sharon explores the relationships of color and form or of color and value as they provoke different emotional responses and suggest different referents to the natural world. 


We’ll be hosting a special Closing Reception Brunch with Marie Danielle Leblanc on Sunday, November 11th from 2-4pm.
