Uneasy abstract shapes begin to narrate Elise Snow's anxious and absurd story about being human. Superimposed upon these abstract shapes are fluid, floral imagery. Elise is interested in this conceptual play between the abstract shapes and representational flora as it mirrors a human psychological and physical entanglement. Elise is entertained visually by the plays between flatness and form, hard and soft edges, intense color against muted and movement near stillness.

The titles in this body of work are based on superstitions.
