Elise Hibbard

Elise Hibbard’s work deals primarily with scale. Working with childlike symbols such as dollhouses, toys and log cabins, Hibbard uses depth and dramatic lighting to create theatrical moments that play with the viewer’s sense of reality. This mixing of fantasy with “real life” blurs our perception of true and false and allows Hibbard to create both humorous and disturbing scenes that place memories, fantasies, and experiences into the scale and aesthetic of a diorama.

this is a good start but seems to avoid discussing much of her work (the TTV project using her grandmother's camera for instance)...please expand...
