"Elizabeth Harris works with molten beeswax mixed with resin, oil paint and pigments, along with graphite and marble dust. Harris fuses the acts of painting and drawing into beautifully layered surfaces suggesting a sense of deep illuminated space. With lyrical scrawls, scribbles, gouges, deep scratches and repetitive mark-making, Harris' work is rich with associations to language, science and spirituality." -Dana Salvo
