Elizabeth Hoy transmutes the colors and forms of her surroundings into luscious oil paintings. Her surfaces are densely composed of dabs, wipes, scratches and dollops. Extensive drawings and experiments in printmaking give her room to play and discover new structures and motifs. During the Winter Workspace Program, she will continue her recent experiments with plein-air painting as she aims to capture the luminosity of Wave Hill’s grounds.

Hoy has exhibited throughout the Northeast United States, including at Delaware Center for Contemporary Art and at the Painting Center, New York, NY as well as in France. She participated in the Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program at the Bronx Museum in 2013, and has also been nominated for the Joan Mitchell MFA Grant. She recently completed the Klots International Program in Brittany, and has been a resident at Stonington Painters Workshop for four consecutive summers. She earned an MFA from University of Pennsylvania and a BA from Wesleyan University.
