We would like to congratulate Elaine, HSC Class of 2022, for receiving a nomination for consideration in ARTEXPRESS 2023.
Elaine has been nominated for her Body of Work titled ‘The Creation of Eves (un- agapē)’.
Artist: Elaine Cheng
Citation: My work is a personal exploration of identity and the constraints placed on one by ‘society’. The hands painted like marble symbolise traditional ideas, they reach out from nowhere and everywhere. The figures in front are depicted in living colour, charged with emotion and seeking a new way of being. The figures emerge from the darkness communicating the complex nature of the internal and external struggle for self-actualisation. My artistic influences are Michelangelo and Caravaggio.
