About the work :

Elegant Elegy is a photograph by the contemporary English artist Miss Aniela from her series ‘Surreal Fashion’.

This photograph is of a model dressed by photographer and stylist Kirsty Mitchell, set in the 19th Century neo-Gothic styled Château de Challain, in the French Loire. It is photographed in the castle's private taxidermy collection; the female figure appears to represent an allegory of time. A richly studied composition, this photograph appears to be composed in two distinct lit parts. On the right, there are stuffed animals and a clock. On the left, there is a game of chess and a painting hanging on the wall of a knight whose stance is replicated by the model. The image takes the viewer into another era, suggesting an elegant, if somewhat dismal atmosphere.

Miss Aniela's ‘Surreal Fashion’ series brings together multiple influences and presents staging at the crossroads between fashion photography, classical painting and cinema. Using a complex style that combines natural and artificial, architecture and man, pictorial tradition with digital innovation, the artist creates a visual world that is at times opulent, at times sublime and sometimes bizarre. Each photograph in the series has its own unique aesthetics as well as its own narrative.  

These artworks dreamlike atmosphere which they bathe in, is primarily achieved through meticulous attention paid to their locations and the models’ outfits. References to the fashion world is done through the models styling in the choice of costumes, make-up, hairstyles and accessories that recall contemporary fashion shows as well as balls of yesteryear held in historic places, selected today by the photographer for her shoots. For Miss Aniela, not only the dresses but the animals as well in the compositions are part of the female protagonist’s personality in her images. The photographs are digitally processed in post-production, allowing themes such as animals, mythological creatures or even seascapes to be taken from old masters’ paintings and added to the composition, giving its surreal atmosphere while maintaining its aesthetic consistency. 

The photographs are printed with a white margin of 5 cm on each side, therefore the dimensions of the paper are those of the image plus 10 cm. 

The price indicated applies to the print alone, without mount and unframed. For all special requests concerning mounting and framing please contact us.
