About the Artist

"Elsa Zorkow’s canvases may be large in size but they are in no way massive in mood, for the deep-laying vibrations that vitalise the surfaces render the paintings light and airy. Their elegant grace relates no stories, but rather invites us to experience feelings. The artist often uses the technique of collage, whereby she incorporates fragments of her own past works to skilfully compose new creations. Elsa Zorkow has art in every fibre of her being. The intensity of expressed spirit in her works can leave no viewer cold." Stephane Rey, Nov. 1991
