Elizabeth Donsky

Since her beginnings as a practicing artist, Elizabeth Donsky has concentrated on multiple drawings in site-specific installations. Her projects begin with hundreds of restless drawings—inks, watercolors, encaustics; oils on paper; traces and rubbings; digital prints—and an investigation of how discrete still, permanent images can account for the passage of time and the unending transformation of matter.

Donsky has produced installations in a seaside motel, a NYC Garment District storefront, and at The Carriage House at the Islip Art Museum; her work has been exhibited in commercial, nonprofit and academic spaces. Donsky has taught at Drexel, Hofstra and Brown Universities; she received a MA in Arts and Humanities from New York University and a BFA in painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
