Elissa Sampson – “All Star”

Starting bid: $300.00

1 in stock

I set out to try and create a piece that had an appeal to a wide range of audiences. The pairing of iconic Wonder Woman imagery with a Converse All Star shoe was too perfect to pass up. I teamed this graphite piece with a simple purple stripe to signify the link with epilepsy. My aim is that people can find their own unique meaning behind this piece.

Medium: Graphite pencils, graphite powder & coloured pencils on Fabriano Artistico

Dimensions: 29.5 x 42cm

Item condition: New

Elissa is a Queensland artist, specialising in realism. Creating mostly black and white pieces, she seeks to magnify and display intricacies of certain details and textures that can be found all around us. Mainly working with a wide range of professional quality graphite pencils and powder, Elissa often takes out backgrounds completely in order to ‘push’ the subjects forward in her work.

Her process starts in a notebook writing and drawing ideas, then moves on to sourcing objects, people, even animals for staged photo shoots where images can then be referenced digitally when working.

Elissa likes to leave the audience member to find their own meaning behind most pieces, allowing for many unique interpretations.
