Ellen Nemetz

I am a contemporary representational artist painting a variety of subject matters including landscapes and figures. I see realism as a powerful creative force with nuances of value and hue. I strive to evolve and grow as a painter, pushing composition, altering light and color. My media of preference are oil and acrylic.

All my works are thematically interrelated in that they are based on my external environment as well as on self-examination. In my most recent body of work, I use reflections as a metaphor for memory. These reflected images establish a link between the landscape’s reality and its reflection. Each memory is like this reflection of landscape in moving water: beautiful, ephemeral, and inaccurate.
