‘An eye for detail’ is how I would describe Elaine’s artistic style. On her print you can see how she pays attention to the beauty of small things. She has transferred photographic images onto a plate using the photo-intaglio process. This consists of a mixture of digital and traditional techniques blend together in a very contemporary piece of work.
Her collection of objects in ‘Remedies” are a very feminine way of telling a story. It reminds me in a way, of a celtic culture where an obscure ‘magical remedy’ was to be given for a cure. The monochrome palette used also brings to mind to the 1900s or even earlier, before modern medicine prevailed.
