Elise works at the intersection of photography and sculpture. Her images of complex installations explore the relationship between two and three dimensions, and what it means to take, or make, a photograph. Probing the illusionistic space of the constructed image, she draws the viewer beyond the picture plane into a realm of seductive surfaces and hyper-real colours.
Elise shapes her subject-matter from the objects and textures of everyday life, tweaking and transforming their original form and meaning. The resulting photographs, often surreal and sometimes humorous, hover on the edge of familiarity. She presents an inventive, supersaturated world where graphics, objects, light and shadow, connect and collide. Recent commissions include British Vogue, Elle, Ford, Nokia, Sony Playstation and VW.
