Review for "In My Head" - SPECTRUM Miami

"In My Head" Collection, Tristina Dietz Elmes
Curatorial Review by Kate Devereaux
December 2, 2015  |  SPECTRUM Miami

With innovative designs and illuminating color, mixed-media artist Tristina Dietz Elmes breathes life into her large-scale abstract pieces with an innate energy and obvious passion. By using oil and acrylic paints, her work juxtaposes bright, opaque line work with a translucent background and a glossy smooth, begs-to-be-touched finish. In her studio, she lets her love of color guide her when painting thought-provoking works that give viewers a glimpse into her world. With her new series “In My Head,” Dietz Elmes depicts remarkable visual texture with undulating color punctuated by the sensuous curves of ecstatically thrown liquid oil and topped off with bubbles of painted resin. The timeless aesthetic of her paintings in conjunction with their unique composition are intriguing aspects that embody an evolution in today’s Modern Abstraction.

My Art On Exhibit - Artblend Gallery

It's such a thrill to visit my artwork and see it stunningly hung and lit in beautiful galleries. Imagine my surprise today when I stopped by the Artblend Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to pick up copies of the newest Artblend Magazine... and found my large painting "Into the Blue" in the window! Woo Hoo!

I'm holding the newest Artblend Magazine in my hands that will be in Barnes & Noble for sale soon, and you'll find my painting "In My Head" on page 85. So much excitement today!

If you're in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, October 24, please join me at the Artblend Fall Exhibition Opening Reception from 6-8 pm, 2736 East Oakland Park Blvd, 33306, where you'll get lost in the depths of my painting "Into the Blue" and be mesmerized by the other fantastic artworks in this spectacular space while being entertained by me and my fellow Artists as we sip wine, eat delicious snacks and share stories of wonderment. See you there! :D
