Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Elena Gutierrez lets nothing stand between herself and her passions. Having studied art in Guadalajara and currently working in Spokane, Washington, Gutierrez is deeply proud of her Mexican roots and culture. Gutierrez’s acrylic paintings are indeed a product of the soul. She describes her process as letting her spirit go, working intuitively, experimenting with color, and above all else, she says, “Listening to what the painting wants me to say.”
For Gutierrez, abstract expressionism was a natural way to communicate a spiritual experience to her audience. Her inspiration is found in her feelings, nature, literature, music, artwork, children, travel, and the everyday interactions of those around her. Her paintings depict the jumble of life at close quarters, but are adorned with sweeping, heroic flourishes that function as a kind of narrative arc for a story that is both deeply known and yet to be told. “For me, it is a thrill to paint,” Gutierrez says, “to develop my creativity, my imagination and intuition —living, flying, dreaming, and revealing my spirit.”
I love to work a new painting intuitively by letting my spirit go, exploring and experimenting with randomness and colors, always working with different rhythm of music. Therefore I love ABSTRACT ART.
Some years ago, I found this path to work very spontaneous without restraint and judgment and listening what the painting wants to say me in an intimate connection with my feelings.
So, to work in this way, my spirit becomes freer, excited and a good self-exploration.
My most recent art work is developed with acrylic on canvas, mixing sometimes other materials up, and the themes are correlated, having a deep and spiritual message.
For me, it is a thrill to paint, to develop my creativity, my imagination and intuition; living, flying and dreaming and revealing my spirit. It is a deep, personal and intense pleasure
