ELLEN YETVIN-HAVEN

Ellen Yetvin-Haven strikes a chord when paralleling her paintings to music and the recording of time. Delicate and wistful in some passes, robust and reverberating in others, the melody in her mind gracefully moves across the painted surface. What was once the glaring white noise of the canvas is slowly eliminated, remaining only as a breath within a symphony of colors. Influenced by measure and rhythm, she bounces between three paintings at a time, vigorously directing paint on canvas as a conductor directs an orchestra. Every mark an individual moment, time materializes and accumulates on the surface as each painting becomes a record of its own creation.
