Wild and Whimsical by Elizabeth Romhild
Elizabeth Romhild's latest work in sculpture and painting offer a robust vision of the pleasures of sensuality. The spirit of joie de vivre, of course, emanates from Elizabeth's current works. However, this spirit belies more complex understandings. For a start, her rotund and fleshy women challenge pervasive traditions for representing the female body.
Unconventionally beautiful, the artist's figures are not idealized and not the typical object of masculine notions of feminine desirability. Instead, Elizabeth explores distinct understandings of self-possession. Her women appear unfettered by social and cultural constraints as they insist on their sense of individual expressiveness.
