Elyse Moir is a K’jipuktuk/Halifax based visual artist and facilitator with a background in community art and working with children and youth. Elyse has worked with many local organizations including NSCAD University, AGNS, CFAT and Wonder’neath Art Society and is committed to helping people of all ages to connect and collaborate through creative practices.
Elyse Moir’s illustrative works bloom as paintings, collages and textiles depicting colourful moments of curiosity and glimpses to murky inner realms. In chaotic, overgrown fields, small, tender petals of meaning are plucked and arranged carefully amongst weeds, alluding to memories, stories and bizarre alternate realities. In these works, beginning and end are undetermined as the artist explores the non-linear nature of healing and of finding joy, humour, resilience and care in collaborative practices in art, music and performance. Through vibrant visual motifs, interactive objects and community happenings, Elyse hopes to encourage others to connect, create, rest and play.
