Vanitas-Revisited | Head On Photo Festival


Elaine Batton


Exhibition Dates:

01 May 2019 to 31 May 2019


Exhibition Description

Vanitas Revisited considers the beauty and fragile transience of life and memories.
Mirroring the gentle shadow and ethereal inevitability of decline, these floral images capture the temporal nature of life in a painterly style.
The works are influenced by the Dutch Masters and the 17th century Netherlands still life paintings.
Enveloped in chiaroscuro, this imagery explores and celebrates the soulful nature and wonder of our lives.
