“My paintings talk about life, about freedom, the freedom I feel when I'm in front of my white canvas.” - Beatriz Elorza
The changing seasons subtly enter the work of Beatriz Elorza, influencing colour and mood, allowing each painting to hold a memory of place and time.

Colour is a starting point for Elorza. Her fluid brush strokes talk about the surprise of a winter that has suddenly arrived, whilst the dynamism of her flowery compositions conjure up adventure. Carefully considered compositions reveal points of tension in the artist's life. The hopes and expectations of a potential move to the other side of the globe, the animated suspense of the unknown or the calm that follows a tumultuous decision. Within each painting, nature is a pretext for the artist to mine and express the dynamism and tensions of her unconscious self.

To evoke the words of the American modernist Cy Twombly, Elorza's work is not about the floral subject, “but about the blooming” of emotions.

Beatriz Elorza (1981, Santander) trained as an architect and came to painting in 2006, studying with Leticia Ortiz de Urbina in Madrid and Frank O'Cain in New York. Now living in London, Elorza exhibits internationally. Following group exhibitions in Tokyo, Bristol, Madrid and Wells in 2015, Elorza launched 2016 with a solo show at Anderson Contemporary in New York. Her work is held in the permanent collections of Russia's Tsvetaev Museum in Moscow, Spain's Mauro Muriedas Museum in Torrelavega and Wells Museum in the UK.
