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.

Météorites 1 30cm x 173cm   Photo by Olivier Junod
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.
