Poetic Motion in Sculpture and Paintings
Elaine Franz Witten is an award-winning classically trained sculptor and painter. The hallmarks of her bronzes are beautiful form, creative use of negative space and illusion of movement. Her work includes figurative, animals, birds, and “antique” musical instruments. Her excellent paintings exude a poetic interpretation of the natural world.
She states, “My work is inspired by living close to nature in Vermont. With an R.N. background, my anatomical knowledge informs my figurative work.” The artist has taught sculpture for fifteen years at Southern Vermont Art Center, Manchester, Vermont. In 2013, she became a purveyor of sculpture to the U.S. State Department for use as Presidential gifts.
Her art has been exhibited in over 130 national and international exhibitions as well as museums and regional solo shows and has been awarded numerous prizes. Her bronzes are in public as well as private collections in U.S., Canada, and in the private collection of the King of Saudi Arabia.
In New York City, hery sculptures have been exhibited at Park Avenue Atrium Gallery as part of several National Sculpture Society Exhibitions, the National Arts Club, Salmagundi Art Club and Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Gallery.
Painting her perceptions in oil, watercolor, or ink in a “poetic realism” style, Elaine Franz Witten says, “I intuitively capture how the information in nature affects me and give this a voice.”
