A.centric Artist Profile: Elena Iourtaeva.
October 27, 2011 § Leave a comment
Welcome to the A.centric artist profile. This time, we have Elena Iourtaeva. The Moscow born artist studied music, painting and clay modeling before heading to Geneva, where she studied printmaking and Chinese calligraphy. She is currently a Fine Art specialist at UofT.
She had this to say about the photographs she submitted:
The series of photographs “Abstracted Habits” shows familiar objects or places in a new light. What is commonly overlooked or ignored becomes empowered and transformed by a combination of tight cropping, unusual lighting and macro magnification. One may wonder what the initial object
was, or just enjoy a new aesthetic.
If you are a student or alum of UofT and would like to take advantage of our weekly profile series to get your work seen, please send a few jpegs or a link to your work to this email address.
