Elizabeth Casuga uses her background in scientific research as a point of departure for her artistic explorations in “Scientific Abstraction.”
“Open-ended” visuals create a simulacrum of microscopic “internal-scapes,” while at the same time suggests an interconnection to cosmological galaxies, geological topographies, space-time dimensions or subatomic particles.
Her goal is to seduce the viewer with luminous layered works that plays with the viewer’s perception like a dimensional Rorschach test. Thus, yielding variable possibilities in meaning, as they wander through the painting as an operation of their own psychological transmigration.
Elizabeth holds a BS in Psycho-Biology (UCLA), and a BFA & MFA in Art (CSU Long Beach). She worked in Pathology & Transplant Research at UCLA as a Staff Research Associate.
She has exhibited in galleries and museums in California, Montana, Wisconsin and abroad.
