Elaine Campaner Biography

Elaine Campaner photographs transient dioramas of found objects. She plays with the spatial relationships between objects, discovering evocative connections, visual illusions and conceptual complexity. Her work often represents certain types of environmental and political imagery that 'seeps' into the artist's domestic life. Potent symbols and forms re-emerge in the miniature world of everyday things: control towers in coffee pots, cooling towers in saltshakers.Campaner compares her photography to painting, explaining that the object merely replaces the brush. Her eye and imaginative powers are focused on the formal qualities and metaphorical possibilities of objects, and the ways in which they might interact 'to make an image with its own internal visual coherence and narrative.'
