About the Artist:

Fine art, defying boundaries

      In Elaine Weiner-Reed’s own words, "My art focuses on unraveling the complexity and mystery of human emotions, behavior, and relationships, featuring the individual within or outside of a group dynamic. Layers of color, shape, and line etched with calm or charged energy coalesce to convey a mood: intimacy, loneliness, alienation, joy, solidarity, sensuality, conflict, harmony, or mystery.  Depending on the story, I zoom in on an individual, defining their character in layers, or I depict them only as silhouettes or after-thoughts. Are they center stage or out of focus? Do they wear a mask?... And if my paintings were songs, how would they sound to you?...

     Note: This line of thinking was the genesis for EWR’s "Every Painting is a Song" initiative and official first annual competition for writers, songwriters, and musicians.
