Forrest Elliott

Forrest Elliott (b. 1992) is a painter exploring color relationships and how they are translated through the experience of seeing onto a two-dimensional surface. He works within the landscapes of coastal Southern Maine and the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. He received his B.F.A. from the University of New Hampshire with a minor in History, where he was awarded the UNH Department of Art & Art History Photography Fellowship in 2013-14. His work has been featured in Clover + Bee, Design*Sponge, and Studio Visit. He is represented by Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery in Sandwich, New Hampshire and he has exhibited extensively including at at BUOY Gallery in Kittery, Maine, Drift Art House in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and the Museum of Art at the University of New Hampshire. He is currently a full-time artist based between York, Maine, and Newland, North Carolina with his husband, Dana.

“Painting the landscape challenges me to transcend the boundaries of my location and identity. I translate color relationships through observation and personal recollection in my work. Nuances of color and light are distilled to create essential forms, sometimes allowing the viewer to see just enough.”
