Recordings of my conversation with Elinore with a slideshow of her work:
Her website and images to explore and contemplate:
What she says of herself on her bio page on the website lights her work:
“I am a contemporary representational painter who uses real scenes to evoke and celebrate the complexities of disconnectedness and emptiness in a world of global connectedness and the desire for transcendence in a secular world.”
Other words from the website:
Elinore paints every day in her own private studio space in Long Island City, Queens, New York. Her paintings are in many museum collections such as The Cleveland Museum of Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.; she has work in more than 50 corporate collections and many important private collections in this country and abroad.
She is a contemporary figurative painter who has exhibited in major galleries and museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, [and is in the collections of museums such as] the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Museum of the City of New York, and the Museum of Fine Art in St. Petersburg, Florida.
“Elinore is one of the most talented painters in Long Island City,” said Scott Walsh, director of market research. “The process of working on this piece over the past months has been a wonderful experience. We are very excited to continue our support of local artists within the community and pleased our residents will get to enjoy the painting every day.”
