By Michelle Elrick
In short poetic tablets that mix to shape lengthy, lyrical narratives, Elrick enfolds layers of tactile and remembered event, providing continuous moments of shock. within the observer's eye, the double act of perceiving and writing lends transformative and mythic houses to the standard: "a heron drums a development of shadows at the floor of the ocean, wings tick with quartz regularity. bay clouds spot purple, bulbs of peach bloom, smoulder and die down into blue.” the gathering is infused via a feeling of nostalgia and longing in the current second, illustrating the elusiveness of domestic even whereas it really is being lived: "I watch because the day opens, increasing its geometry. diffuse gentle penetrates the blind. scorching solar yellows chilly concrete (caress stretching around the courtyard).”
Each quiet second of mirrored image builds upon the others to provide a feeling of position that's as quick and fleeting as domestic itself. Elrick has an uncanny feel for taking pictures and illuminating these moments that would later glow in memory.
