Piece description from the artist
Compared with simple eyes, compound eyes possess a very large view angle, and can detect fast movement and, in some cases, the polarisation of light. When looking at such a beautiful being, I want to see infinitely.
Elena Kulikova is a San Francisco based Artist. Her photography career began in Amsterdam, where she worked for clients such as L'Officiel, Virgin Airlines, and numerous publications. Her prints have been sold at Colette Paris (the world famous Paris-based Boutique) and the Urban Outfitters Apartment Print Shop.
Her photography style depicts the infinite; with her multi-layered processes of the photograph's subject she reveals the infinite side through sublime repetition.
She is currently working on a book of "Eye Portraiture". When looking at her painterly photographs of eyes, the viewer becomes locked in a gaze and can only look deeper as the foreground pulls into the center.
