Collage: Challenging Scale, Space and Environment



Sophie Victoria Elliott.

Work in progress for the residency at Milkwood Gallery, Roath, Cardiff.

This collage is made up of images and words responding to the journey I am making between Caerphilly and Milkwood Gallery via public transport and my bike. This projects promotes the ecological benefits of using sustainable and public transports.

Untitled: Absence

Sophie Victoria Elliott ‘Untitled: Absence Series’ Graphic Collage, Paper Collage, Photography and Photo-manipulation, June 2012.

Looking at repetition of shape to communicate the rhythm experienced on the bike.

The triangular shape is derived from a number of images, sources and ideas collated whilst on the bike.

Camera, compromises and chases.

Sophie Victoria Elliott, ‘Untitled: Chasing Light Series’ photographs. June 2012.

A collection of images taken on today’s bike journey, and manipulated to express the temporal light and continual flux experienced.

This work feels as though projection, acetate and layering would be appropriate as the development.

Chasing Light

Sophie Victoria Elliott ‘Untitled: Cyclical Extractions’ Graphic Collage, June 2012.

In response to my current cycling residency for Cardiff Cycle Festival 2012 at Milkwood Gallery.

Combining the transitional space experience whilst on a bike with the refractions of light and repetition/ rhythm experienced.

This collaboration seeks to engage in a dialogue. Sophie is from Wales but currently lives in England and Phil is from England currently living in Wales. With this they both share an understanding of re-location, travel and distance from ‘home’.

This particular piece is in response to Sophie’s current residency for the Cardiff Cycle Festival. Both Phil and Sophie use cycling as a key mode of transport. By combining photographs on their travels, found images of the locations from the past, landscape references to contours, signage found en-route and colours derived from those journeys only they aim to communicate dislocation from their homeland by discovering the nuances of their new homes.
