BLOSSFELDT'S APPRENTICE

2016

Elaine Duigenan's work looks closely at objects. Specimens—both made and found—are recorded in the momentary state between grace and collapse.

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.
