Paper collages, layered shapes, and textural dimension define the unique artworks by Elise Wehle. Inspired by urban posters, layered and ripped forming into expressive murals, her tactile collection features ethereal landscapes, intriguing photography and soulful portraits gracefully manipulated to create stunning contemporary works.
With paper as her medium, the artist utilizes her hands–not computer-driven design–to intensively build, weave, clip, fold, even embroider, these basic materials into impactful art. Hues are elegantly restrained in subdued shades of grey, green, midnight and white yet manage to evoke dramatic contrast whether in the mountain vistas, landscapes or provoking portraitures. Designed with a free-spirited energy, these dynamic works of art make innovative holiday gifts.
Currently, the Elise Wehle collection features eight works entitled Cloudy Mountainscape, Where the Land Ends, Lone Peak, Seaside, Spanish Moss, Forest Line at Dusk, Woven Seascape and Girls Looks Back. All of her original pieces are available as modern framed prints, the perfect home decor contribution to any interior space seeking a dose of interest.
Elise Wehle meticulously creates this award-winning art collection from her home in Provo, Utah.
