Ellie Davis @ Crane Kalman Gallery
21 July 2016 - 20 August 2016
Into the Woods, a new exhibition by young British photographer Ellie Davies showcases her new work from the series Half Light, alongside her earlier bodies of work. The 22 works in the exhibition have been created by Davies over the past seven years in the forests of the UK, and explore the complex interrelationships between the landscape and the individual. The forest is Davies’s studio. Working alone she responds to, and alters, the landscape with a series of temporary interventions, such as making and building, creating pools of light on the forest floor, or using craft materials such as paint and wool. A golden tree is introduced into a thicket to shimmer in the darkness, painted paths snake through the undergrowth, and strands of wool are woven between trees. The final images are a culmination of these elements and each piece draws on its specific location. Using handmade sculptural elements, she superimposes her personal narratives on the landscape.
