Birth of Desire 2010
Elizabeth Edwards is another of the high achievers in my graduating class, I had been quite aware of her immaculate oil paintings throughout this year, as her studio backed onto mine. But it was only recently that I saw her website that I found her tenebrous photography.
Her compositions revisit and linger over moments in time, in which selves, femininity, sexuality and longing are all delicately conveyed here for the consumption of the viewer. Human intervention is void from her photographs, absence is employed in order to pose subtle assumptions of human relationships and interaction, quiet, dark, empty, these scenes emit melancholic questions.
