Elise Ansel in the Boston Globe

Ansel, a painter's painter who works wet-on-wet, uses old master paintings as source material to create fluid, gestural abstractions. It's as if she's pulling the vaunted old scenes authored by Great Men through time's vortex and revealing them to be something new – shorn of history's traps but still rooted in its essence, something that shimmers and hums.
