Ongoing, "Elisabeth Scheidl Paintings",INSIDE, 149 Gough St, SF, CA Inside
The intent of my paintings is to express connections and processes of nonliteral thought and memory through abstracted flowcharts and schematic diagrams.
This body of work began over five years ago, deriving from my experience in industrial and information design,
where visual organization of information is a central process. Rather than relying on facts and figures to create order, the paintings use layers of texture and color to reveal paths and patterns that might organize the inexpressible.
I usually prefer to paint on square surfaces. I think this allows the piece to develop free from the spatial constraints of a perceived horizon. It lets the visual plane hang in a balance between vertical elevation and birds-eye view.
I intentionally keep my paintings devoid of imagery that would specify scale. This allows me to express a paradoxical point of view that is both close-up and far away.
My work is currently nonexclusively represented by INSIDE , 149 Gough Street in San Francisco

Michael Whalen has been writing, producing and directing documentaries for 12 years.
His credits include Another First Step, SFMOMA: The Building of a Modern Museum and episodes from the Biography, Ancient Mysteries and Super Structures series on A&E and The Discovery Channel.
