Elaine Gentile - Plein Air Landscape - Figurative - Still Life
Gentile creates landscapes on location called "plein aire". The scenery
across the Golden Gate Bridge where she lives now resembles the
landscapes of her hometown in Upstate N.Y. where she grew up, on a
large dairy farm.
Her still life paintings of fruit and flowers
are bold with vibrant, contrasting colors. Elaine remembers how as a
small child, she used to pick wild flowers.
occupations as a flight attendant, teacher and psychotherapist have all
helped to make her abstract pieces more reflective.
She likes to work
with energy and emotion mixed at times with places of rest.
paintings are in the collection of numerous medical and business
establishments including the prestigious Sakaide Museum in Japan.
Elaine has had numerous exhibitions in Marin County and San
Francisco. She was given a "Finalist Award" in the December issue
of Artist's Magazine for their 23rd Annual Art Competition for 2006.
Education: B.A. - San Francisco State University, M.A. - Dominican University in Marin County.
