Christine Elfman  |  Even Amaranth


The project Even Amaranth depicts classical sculptures alongside natural landscapes and gothic still lifes. In this body of work, Elfman brings together gelatin-silver prints, photograms and anthotypes, all of which are created using amaranth dye. Anthotype photographs of cast statues are made by exposing the dye to the sun for weeks in contact with a transparency. These fading pictures are placed alongside archival silver gelatin and pigment prints of landscapes where the trace of human presence is now long absent, as if to suggest a fragmented narrative in which figure is unique from setting.
