Elisa Deane

Elisa Deane is a London-based painter making contemporary work with a traditional twist. She is inspired by traditional miniature techniques derived from India and Persia.

Creating joy through colour is of paramount importance and many of the colours – lapis lazuli, malachite and cinnabar – have been sourced from the earth.

For Deane, colours are “a powerful force that create vibrations which sing.” The abstract, geometric nature of her work represents the simple and the universal, the micro and the macro and the interplay of these dichotomies.
