About the Work
To create Bluepoint, Elise Ferguson worked in her studio, directly silkscreening pigmented plaster onto coldpress paper, echoing the exact process utilized when creating her larger body of work. Inspired by architect Louis Kahn and his modernist re-envisioning of concrete as a primary medium, Ferguson uses common building materials to craft geometric compositions that explore illusionary space and materiality. A handmade edition of 20, Bluepoint balances the precise delicacy of Ferguson's aesthetic with her transformative usage of everyday materials.
Elise Ferguson has mounted solo exhibitions at Halsey McKay Gallery (East Hampton), 106 Green (Brooklyn), Romer Young Gallery (San Francisco), Envoy Gallery (New York), Livingroom D Lyx (Malmo, Sweden), and White Columns (New York) as well as a collaboration with Comme des Garçons. She has also been included in group exhibitions with Luring Augustine (New York), Regina Rex (New York), Eric Firestone Gallery (East Hampton), Andrew Kreps (New York), Klaus von Nichtssagend (New York), Team Gallery (New York), and Sculpture Center (New York) among others. She has been featured in The New York Times, Artforum, The Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune and New York Magazine. Born in 1964 (Richmond, Virginia), she received her BFA from The School of the Art Institute Chicago, and her MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Elise Ferguson currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
