Micro-Worlds: Interpretations & Observations of Organic Forms explores the nuances and intricacies of microscopic forms, often removed from their original context. Using printmaking as a means of documenting objects, Elaine has moved away from realistic or identifiable forms to create a suite of new objects that map the discovery of an unknown world. Influenced by personal moments, memories and reflections, the images are largely based on emotional and intuitive responses to objects familiar and present in Elaine’s immediate environment. The identity and meaning of these precious objects shift over time. They are no longer growing, they are no longer alive, but they are far from static. The ever-changing forms remain dynamic, providing endless possibilities, re-imaginings and new worlds.
