2016 Finalists

Elaine BATTON

Artist statement: ‘Southside’ is from the series Traveller or tourist? which explores travel with imagery that seeks to engage and transport the viewer. A painterly landscape that expands on travelling as it mixes with exploration of light, emotion, past travels and art. This work is a photomontage combining adjacent scenes in the remote mountain regions south of the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco. The use of bold colour and contrasts combines to add depth to the whole composition. This interweaving of scenes from the south side celebrates beauty that is timeless and ageless.
