Akron-based artist Elizabeth Dunfee uses lyrical painting and mixed-media elements as a means to explore the consistent introduction of synthetic chemicals to our natural environment. Particularly, she weighs the alteration and manipulation of natural elements with the effects that they produce in human bodies. Dunfee primarily works with watercolor and oil. She investigates sound through other media by examining the connection between sound as a physical entity and architectural structures and spaces. She received her BFA from the University of Akron in 2011 and plans to obtain an MFA.
"My interest in representing sound evolved since my initial exploration of the concept in 2009 while contemplating how I could manipulate paint in an abstract way."
