“The series Junkmail², the large 7ft x 7ft cardboard works called $AVE/PRODUCE and many of my collages are symbiotic. To make these pieces, I developed my own ‘recycling’ technique: first, images are pulled from printed advertisements with clear adhesive tape. The resulting transparent pictures are scanned, enlarged and filed for future imagery reference. Many actual tape segments appear as collage elements in the large paintings on paperboard Envy (Printed Line) and Save/Produce. From the bits of paper that are a by-product of this process, I form the small circular surfaces for Junkmail².” – Elisha

From the press release:
Elisha Sarti is a painter who works with acrylics, collage, found objects and colored pencil on a variety of substrates.

For the ongoing series Junkmail², Sarti paints visual odes to disposable mass media like discarded menus, tabloid magazines and dish detergent labels on handmade paper discs she fabricates from reconstituted junkmail. In addition to working as a visual artist, Sarti is a co-director of NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art.


NOWhere Limited’s All Roads Project is a new experiment in alternative exhibition space.
Conceived with a “waste not want not” mentality, artists Elisha Sarti and Scott Lickstein, co-founders of NOWhere Limited, converted their SUV into Chelsea’s smallest art space… (Continue reading here.)
