Elaine Phipps


My work explores the mystery in odd neglected corners – under the hedge; dancing in the undergrowth. To capture the euphoria of colour and shifting light as the day goes by or a night ends; the primal energy of a weather front chasing across a flank of land or along a shoreline. I’m also working on an ongoing series of paintings and drawings based around Shakespeare’s character Ophelia and a series of paintings and drawings based around the exploration of tree-magic and transformation, dryads and Ogham.
