Elizabeth  Topham
The depiction and study of nature is a pervasive force within my work. It links me to the history of painting and acts as an allegory and reflection to larger questions in my life. I am currently working on studies for a body of work titled, Desire: The Magnificent Obsession. In this series I am studying the structural aspects of paint and its ability to depict the voluptuous forms of blackberry brambles as well as its subject matter as a metaphor for the dichotomies within desire; seductive yet dangerous, ecstasy yet agony, representing our often conflicted relationship to desire.
