Elizabeth Hosking explores light, space and nature through serene landscape photography. Each piece is contemplative and stripped back, shaped by the impact of natural light at different times of the day.
As a product of these experiments with light, dark shadows are used to highlight shapes and figures. This creates a sense of soft, cyclical mystery which attracts viewers, encouraging them to spend more time investigating the relationship between human nature and land.
Influenced by Georgia O’Keeffe’s abstraction of natural forms, Hosking is a minimalist at heart. She takes limited equipment on the road. A camera and a couple of lenses form the basis of her artistic process.
The work is spontaneous - a byproduct of exploring a new place, rather than her singular focus. Hosking’s most recent series was photographed in New Zealand, and raw images were edited back home in her Melbourne studio.
