Elise Futoransky

Elise Futoransky is an artist living and practicing in Edmonton, Alberta. Her work is sourced primarily in printmaking and painting, and she draws on her Eastern European background for inspiration. Her practice often references folk practices and the narrow delineation between art and craft, as well as utilising religious elements as visual shorthand. The tension between tradition and the contemporary is highly of interest to Elise, and as such her work is not only a celebration of her heritage but also an investigation of how culture is filtered through the passage of time and distance.
