Artist Elizabeth Lisa Petrulis is reacquainting herself with dirty hands after two decades working with white gloves in an art Museum.
Do you live in central Illinois or Indiana? Then Ms. Petrulis is your reclusive neighbor. She shares a studio and home in rural Marshall, Illinois with her husband, and with several rescued cats and dogs. The mongrels, of mysterious lineage, inspired her recent body of work Dog Studies.
These acrylic paintings are tributes to the profound impact that pets play in our daily lives. The intimate views emphasize the elegance of animal bodies through the stark contrast of black and white.
