elinore bucholtz acrylic abstract painting

After education at UCLA, Adelphi University,  and the Art Students League, Elinore  started an art career that has gathered momentum  quickly in the past couple of years with numerous shows through  various organizations here in Manhattan: WSAC, Women In the Arts,  Metropolitan Artists,     Manhattan Arts (on-line), and American Society of Contemporary Artists.

Her  artistic development  has also  moved rapidly  from representational to abstract art in a very brief period of time. Her abstract art is loose and free flowing and has been described as "intuitive", " spontaneous", creating  a sense of "limitless space",   having "light interact with matter in a way that breaks down the barriers between the physical and the ethereal ",  offering " a cosmic, dreamy experience",   conveying  "the immediate pleasures of paint itself...with sensuous satisfaction and ...autonomous beauty." Her latest review was highlighted by this assessment of her work: "Bucholtz ...boldly carries the torch of Abstract Expressionism into the postmodern era by virtue of her energetic paint handling and unerring sense of form and color."

Elinore  has used all drawing and painting media excelling  in acrylics  and watercolor.

Her work is now in numerous collections both on the east and the west coast as well as in England.

In terms of the historical sweep of art development, her work easily falls under the general rubric of Abstract Expressionism.  However,  it moves on from  that  approach to a more lyrical style  with an  innovative use of very  informal strokes, incomplete  forms,  unusual  arrangements,  and "accidentals", gestures that seem to fall where they may, to create a more serendipitous  experience for the viewer.  Her use of color, too, is unique to her style by being freely chosen based on visual connections  rather than  on rules.

Elinore  hopes to develop these techniques for even more serendipitous adventures  on the part of  her viewers and toward  the  creation of  a new category of art that will be known as Abstract Lyricism.
