London-based artist, working under the mysterious name Elise, creates exceptional three dimensional sculptures from a carefully chosen variety of materials.
The artist prides herself on working on the intersection of sculpture making and photography. Her approach to art probably could not be better described than by her own statement. “Elise fashions her sculptural materials from the synthetic, the industrial, and the vernacular. She is interested in forms that have already been visually processed, the mass-manufactured, machined consumables that we digest and discard. Although her pieces are often complex and large scale, they are composed, in essence, from a reductive approach to structure and form.
She has created her own unique sculptural language, communicated through harmonised colour, ephemeral surface, voluptuous density.” The delicately crafted sculptures are the perfect examples of balancing shapes, colors and materials, while maintaining a certain abstraction. Looking at the exquisitely photographed installations, our mind is tricked by the perfectly composed pictures, which leave us wondering about the certainty of the artworks for a minute.
To our delight, the sculptures are absolutely real and physical, they are the outcome of extensive experience and thoughtful implementation. The artist is guiding the viewer through her own world, drawing their attention to inspect every little detail on the works. Her jaw-dropping pieces are simultaneously pleasing for the eye and calming for the soul.
