“Eloise Kirk‘s practice oscillates between methodology and subject, drawing on the surreal nature of assemblage and collage and testing the boundaries between the romantic and the strange. Kirk draws on the relationship between antiquated art forms and the subject of landscape, geology and alchemy, forging connections between discarded images, fetishising and fictionalising landscapes, proliferating a tangled narrative and the colonisation of images and objects. Kirk composes fragmented, and mysterious objects that are both connected to and displaced from their original context, sensitive to the idea that thought will embrace a geographical space in such a way that, regardless if it is real or fictional, this space becomes a product of human thought.” – Eloise Kirk.
