Elyse Dodge is a Vancouver-based artist, aiming with each acrylic painting to portray an unforgettable euphoric moment captured in time. The painting Elyse created for Six Hundred Four, titled "Elevation" for its dual meaning of being up in the mountains above sea level, and of the emotional feeling of being lifted up, is the artist's own representation of the Garibaldi Provincial Park landscape. The geometric shapes that make up the scenery are the result of Elyse's deconstruction of the formation of Black Tusk, which to her is the symbolism of the beacon of Whistler, of outdoor adventures, and of shifting mindsets.
Elyse has chosen ArtStarts in Schools, a local not-for-profit organization that provides leadership in advocacy for arts in education across British Columbia.
