Contemporary Landscape Artist
L.A.-based Canadian artist Elyse Dodge is best known for her boldly coloured geometric landscapes. Her distinctive visual language explores the contrast between the abstract and the literal, and the connection between soft and hard forms.
Raised in British Columbia, her artist mother and builder father taught her about craftsmanship - and to see her surroundings as shape and colour. Deeply inspired by West Coast scenery, her deconstructed landscapes focus on fractal shapes and texture, skillfully blending the freedom of impressionism with the precision of geometry. Her work serves as a reminder that things are not always what they seem, and that the whole exists only as the sum of its parts - each piece a beautiful and integral component of the full puzzle.
Elyse’s polygonal paintings and prints are featured in contemporary homes and galleries across North America.
She lives in L.A. with her husband and young son.
