The central theme Elvira's work is the preoccupation with the basic conditions of nature and life in general.
The impressions and experiences of living for 16 years in the tropics, with its abundance of growth and decay, influence her work and changed her perception of what is taken for granted.
She creates different kinds of work with different qualities. She likes the flowing properties of watercolors, where things sometimes develop - unplanned - and the pasty richness of acrylic paint.
In some works she has a clear concept. In others, the concept is more vague. The best moments are those, where during painting something happens, that was not thought of, but which suddenly opens up a path and gives an extra dimension.
Elvira completed her "Fading Life" series in 2022, which was exhibited at LiTE-HAUS during the summer.
