Paintings by Mark Elrich

 

Starry Night with Dragons and UnicornWhere: University Hospital, 1st Floor, Carbone Cancer Center Waiting Room

600 Highland Ave.

Madison, WI 53792

When: September 27-January 4

Website: www.etsy.com/shop/brandsonart

 

"This exhibit is all about what can be created through color, simplicity, and composition. My style is 'primitive' – I like to say my painting is like that of Grandma Moses, but with unicorns and dragons, instead of children and maple syrup. I believe the simplicity of the art cuts to the essential, and I hope that the intensity of the colors conjures up feelings beyond the mundane. And perhaps you will find some humor too, to lift the spirit just a little higher than it was before." - Mark Elrich
