This new work by Ellie Huntress juxtaposes human and natural elements in constructed yet ambiguous images. We are presented with typical, natural scenes interrupted. These interruptions take different forms; the unnatural blue leaves of a regular bush, cookie cutter grids in the sand, all disrupted our experience of what would be a ordinary setting. Through obsessive processes of organization and arrangement, Huntress creates installations to be photographed.
The obsessive quality of the work touches on the human need to create order to understand the world around us. By exaggerating this process through repetition and decontextualized representation, Huntress calls attention to the everyday denial of the chaos that surrounds us. The disruptive quality of the work challenges our perceived sense of order in our own world.
Ellie Huntress is a senior photography student at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. Her thesis exhibition takes place in May 2014 at Gallery X in New Bedford, MA.
