Beatriz Elorza


After working as an architect, Beatriz Elorza began to study art in 2006 in Madrid, receiving instruction for five years from Leticia Ortiz de Urbina. She continued her training at New York's Art Students League, from 2011 to 2013, where she studied under Frank O'Cain, Bruce Dorfman, and Charles Hinman.

Elorza's work explores the beauty of nature and has been described as emotional abstract expressionism. Always using four colours or fewer, Beatriz Elorza originals employ a wide range of media including inks, pigment powders and golden acrylics. While her ethereal canvases have a sense of calm, her intuitive process of drips and mark making animates each image turning it into something strong and vital.


"My work involves creating large-scale, abstract paintings that aim to convey my emotions through color and create a personal pictorial language. The color is a starting point for me; the fluid brush strokes talk about the freedom I feel when I'm in front of the canvas. Within each painting, nature is a pretext for me to combine and express the dynamism and tensions of my unconscious self." - Beatriz Elorza

Elorza's artwork has been exhibited at the Wells Museum (UK), has been part of the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London and can be found in the collection of the Tsvetaev Museum in Moscow. She has exhibited internationally with solo exhibits in Madrid, London and New York along with group shows in Japan, Russia and Ireland.
