Moss, bathtub
Dimensions: Variable

Elle Connor’s work uses a range of media to explore the boundaries between the natural and man-made worlds. She combines unexpected materials, often using techniques that are intended to reference Surrealism. Her work, Bath, creates the suggestion that the natural world has somehow invaded the interior of a domestic space, stealthily entering the world of the home. The stark white of the bathtub is clinical and cold, ordinary and yet slightly alienating, contrasting with the soft organic matter of the dark green moss, which is both deeply familiar and entirely out of place in this environment.
