Elise Crevier's works typically deal with the darker and more complex side of human emotions and tendencies, including but not limited to despair, anxiety, traumatic stress, violence, and neglect. Her process begins at the blank canvas, without any sort of preliminary sketch, so that she may record any impromptu thought or impulse to the subject matter directly on the surface. The result is often times an accurate representation of the psychological effects that drive her paintings. She takes much of her inspiration from past and contemporary masters alike, such as Anselm Kiefer, Robert Rauschenberg, Clyfford Still, Gerhard Richter, Morris Lewis and Robert Motherwell. Also drawing inspiration from a wide range of other artistic practices, personal encounters, news stories, and environments.
