LADY AT THE LAKE 1973
This beautiful image of mystery and serenity is undoubtedly one of Elliott’s early artistic triumphs. An anonymous girl gazes out across a completely calm lake after dusk. What is she doing there? Observing the beauty? Reflecting on LIfe? About to jump in? Elliott was pushing the boundaries of his newly chosen medium and was experimenting with de-synchronised flash, to create mood. it’s worth pausing at times to remember that this kind of spiritual beauty is what Art is really all about, not the cheap stabs at controversy and banality which have become so commonplace. As the Artist once quipped “If it can’t be beautiful, I can’t be bothered.”
