ELAINE DUIGENAN

BLOSSFELDT'S APPRENTICE

2016

Elaine Duigenan works with objects—sometimes they are familiar items which have been discarded, other times they are the things which have been kept and valued.

Blossfeldt's Apprentice is Elaine Duigenan's homage to the iconic photographs by the German artist Karl Blossfeldt. In Duigenan's work, Botanical specimens are imitated by objects made out of twist ties, exposing the humble nature of her chosen materials through the visible loose threads and a resulting tension between perfection and imperfection.
