Drawing in Measures – Elisabeth Belliveau

My work is dedicated to the expression of longing, loss and love. In animation, drawing and sculpture I explore the in-betweeness and potency of transformation in animal-people- creature worlds. My practice is committed to material research and imbuing inanimate objects and drawings with care. I employ diaristic, improvisational and “do it yourself” strategies in my practice to enable self-empowerment and to organize hope.
