xxxxxElma Jellá - Studio #10

The sculptured forms of my characters give soul to my series of “Threads”. The thread I continue to follow can be cut and unraveled, painted over and under but remains true to itself. My ancestors have played a part in the development of each painting. The strength, whimsy, feminine, masculine or warrior in me has come through in each of the portraits. They speak with the voice of the character they belong to.

My work is still abstract but in the Post Modern.  My message is to feel, listen and see what we are all about on our journeys into our souls. I want my unconscious to communicate with my conscious to understand the connection. This is the “Thread” of my life.
