Elyse Defoor’s installation Uncloaked unites four bodies of work created by the artist, all of which explore the themes of memory, self-discovery, and growth from a female perspective. Combined, their presence in Uncloaked engages and challenges viewers to contemplate the artist's overarching concern: what it means to be human.
Memory, the passage of time, and the unknown have always been memorable aspects of Atlanta native Elyse Defoor’s creativity. She asks: “What is revealed when the physical is unveiled? What has been empowered in the cloak left behind? The creation of my art is always precarious, like jumping off into the Unknown or diving still deeper into what is already known.” Through the discovery and uncloaking of mysteries and through feminine force Defoor seeks the release of basic truths.


Artist ( Description ): 

Elyse Defoor is a multidisciplinary artist who is inspired by a person’s connection to their inner spirit and unconscious world. From this passionate inspiration, she produces artwork that can be both bold and mysterious. Her drawings, paintings, photography and large scale installations have gained international recognition and national exposure.

In 2008, Defoor’s series “X.U.ME” was presented as a solo exhibition at the Alexandria Museum of Art in Louisiana. X.U.ME is Defoor’s visual response to having seen the Xs marked across the New Orleans landscape after Hurricane Katrina, and was initially developed during her month long residency at Hambidge Arts in 2006.

Other bodies of work include Relics of Marriage, Exuvia, Belted, All of Us Alone, Unbridled, Via Dorso, and Exposed, Four of these bodies of work merge in her new installation, Uncloaked, at Thomas Deans Fine Art in Atlanta.
