Elizabeth Rhoads Read

Bound Restraint
30 x 24 in.

Elizabeth Rhoads Read’s artistic work is inspired by the environment and nature. She doesn’t restrict herself to any one material but is drawn towards simple materials. The assemblage of rearranged fragments and their relationships of the parts are what becomes her language. Elizabeth’s reflective capacity on shaping organic sculpture is the value she strives to incorporate into her work. Her eye for composition and a compulsion for texture exude recesses and secret hiding places that pull one in for shelter. Her pieces create illusive light, interspersed space and speculation beyond the boundaries of her medium. Her philosophy is to immerse herself in textures and tones to express the intensity of capturing emotion. Her paintings and sculptural installations can be found in private and corporate collections.
