Elisa Tenenbaum - Oil on Wheel Covers
Elisa Tenenbaum’s wheel cover paintings combine a distinctive botanical oil painting style with repurposed stainless steel wheel covers. Tenenbaum says, “I started working with the wheel covers about eight years ago when I had the desire to drastically change the format of my paintings. The idea of re-purposing a found object appealed to me, economically and environmentally, and I like the way the decorative quality of the metal becomes an instant frame.”
Born in Tennessee and raised in Atlanta, Elisa Tenenbaum received her M.F.A. from the University of Hartford, and remained in Connecticut working as an illustrator, fine artist and professor of art at Central Connecticut State University.
