ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF NEW MEDIApellathy@uab.edu Office // AEIVA 205 205.975.1052
Elisabeth Pellathy is a multi-disciplinary artist, utilizing drawing, printmaking, electronic media, and digital fabrication in her work. Issues raised by the disappearance of species, language, culture, and information are the catalyst for her visual explorations. As a first-generation American she is keenly aware of the effort to preserve the disappearing, and the poetic slippage that often results. Elisabeth’s work questions art’s intersection with this liminal space, exploring the expressive potential found in both outdated and current modes of visual communication.
Pellathy has exhibited widely in such locations as: Center for the Contemporary Arts, Sante Fe, New Mexico; University of South Carolina School of Visual Art and Design’s McMaster Gallery; George Mason University; ONCA Center for Arts and Ecology Brighton, UK; De Unicorn Center for Arts; and Chaochangdi Arts District Beijing, China.
