Elizabeth developed this series while at an artist colony in California. The work is based on the flax plant (Phormium), which Elizabeth says she has only found growing in California. "This is a close up view, which I feel successfully bridges the gap between abstraction and realism," she says. This painting required a detailed pencil layout before any oil was added. Elizabeth uses her own photographs for this series, however she explains that a frond from one photo and a frond from another may make it into the same painting. "20 photos might be used for one painting."

This piece is a diptych, composed of two separate stretched canvases each measuring 40" x 30". The overall dimensions listed above include 2" of space between the paintings.

Elizabeth Rickert

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Growing up along the picturesque marshes of Maryland's Eastern Shore, artist Elizabeth Rickert developed a lifelong interest in capturing the harmony and beauty in nature. She seeks out new subject matter with travel, developing different working methods for each new series. Her ethereal birds' nests are painted from life while her glowing flax plant paintings come together from lots of reference photographs and detailed drawings. Elizabeth started her art career as a sculptor, which deeply influences the way she approaches forms and the effects of light. "Every subject in my paintings has a dimensional aspect," explains Elizabeth, "each containing a depth which you can just crawl into and get lost." In her free time, Elizabeth finds peace and inspiration in both nature and cooking. Her artwork has been showcased in The Boston Globe and American Art Collector magazines. Elizabeth graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Towson University in Maryland.
