Introducing Elisabett Gudmann
Reception Friday Evening,
July 3, 2015, 5-8 pm
month Lanning Gallery introduces the work of artist
Gudmann, an international artist, has spent the past
two decades developing her unique process of working
with metal. It is a process that is in continual
evolution as the vision of this gifted artist only
"Much of my inspiration comes from the medium
itself," Gudmann notes. "I'm drawn to the inherent
beauty and unique qualities of the metal." Her
innovative skills have led her to create proprietary
formulas that she uses to produce unique patinas in the
surfaces of her work. These chemical patinas provide the
translucency of a surface aged by time while maintaining
meticulous beauty in each piece.
"The imagery I create develops through layered
complexity," Gudmann explains; [it is] a very time
consuming and often chaotic and messy process of working
with the acids and chemicals to create textures and
patterns on the metal, often employing a reductive
technique. I strive to evoke emotional charges through
the interplay of color, texture, marks and form."
Most of Gudmann's work is conceptual in nature,
created within a formal panel structure with the visual
result being a balance between painting and sculpture.
"Multiple panel installations and varying panel depths
are often used," she adds, "giving the works additional
presence and dimensionality."
It is the balance of artistic vision with an expert
control over a complex process that produces Gudmann's
compelling results. There is an influence of Abstract
Expressionism in these contemporary works; references
can be seen of both natural and man-made environments.
While her gallery pieces can range from roughly two
feet to six feet high, Elisabett Gudmann has created
site specific installations up to 55-feet wide and
12-feet tall in such diverse locations as Paris, France;
Seoul, South Korea; New York, New York; and Palm
Her works are in significant collections from New
Delhi to Monte Carlo to San Francisco and New York.
