Artist Information for Elisabeth Nacenta de la Croix

The area where I live (Geneva - Switzerland) has a great influence on my work. As years are passing by, I learned to look around me; so it is what my memory recalls of the colors I see in my surrounding, during travels abroad but also in magazines, photos or paintings which inspire me.

The changing colors of the water, its mouvements and reflections are fascinating: always the same but every day different. The change in continuity is for me a continuous source of wonder. I look at the Leman lake as often as possible; it is a time of meditation which gives me a sense of fulfillment.

I am a textile artist working in Art quilt whose work mixes contemporary techniques with more traditional constructions.

Play of painted fabrics where unexpected little circles are like meteorites crossing the sky and falling unseen into the ocean.

A fantasy on what can happen so quickly in life and which remains present but hidden.
