Lens-based Artist working in River Studios

About Elke

Elke is a lens-based artist primarily working in photography and video. Her work is largely inspired by real-life events and she has a strong interest in lighting and the cinematic. The exploration of people, the unconscious and spaces feature frequently. The work is highly constructed and is a form of psychological mapping, rooted somewhere in the space between reality and fic­tion. Since her arrival in Australia Elke has exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra and Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery. Besides this, Elke undertakes a wide range of commissions for magazines, design agencies and commercial clients.

Elke mainly uses the studio space for experimentation and development of work as well as post production.
