Vanitas Revisited considers the beauty and fragile transience of life and memories. Mirroring the gentle shadow and ethereal inevitability of decline, and set against distant reflections of death, these floral images capture the temporal nature of life. Artist Elaine Batton’s approach is heavily influenced by the Dutch Masters and 17th century Dutch still life paintings. The result is a collection that explores and celebrates the soul and wonder in being alive.
Elaine Batton’s fine art photography is influenced by paintings through the ages. She has exhibited solo and as part of groups around Australia, and was a finalist in the 2016 Bowness Prize and 2016 Fremantle Art Centre Print Award. Her work is included in many private and corporate collections.
