Elizabeth Winnel received a BFA from in illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia and currently lives in Toronto, Canada.
In her paintings she endeavors to make apparent the dichotomy of interior and exterior in relation to her self-image.
Winnel begins each painting with a layer of drips, splashes and bleeding, the ‘associative layer’ binding form and color for emotive effect. The second layer depicts herself in vulnerable and often erotic poses. The aim is not self-objectification, but reflection and analysis.
Her work has been exhibited in Savannah, Georgia, among others.
