Elise Tak is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, New York. In her art she blends day-to-day reality with cinematographic fiction. She uses the imagery of film and popular culture to create a rich fictional and visionary world, while at the same time discussing contemporary, socio-political issues. It is an intricate play between reality and fiction, between life and art, because whereas in the movies, real living actors create a false existence, in Tak's work even these actors are pure fiction. Elise Tak works in both traditional and modern, digital (3D) media.
