Elaine Campaner

Born 1969 Sydney, New South Wales. Lives and works Springwood, New South Wales.


Elaine Campaner’s work is photographic in so far as she uses photography to document the scenes and maquettes she constructs from everyday objects. The camera’s play with focus and scale allows Campaner to reveal unexpected insights into objects, combining them with others to create scenes that wittily explore a range of topics, from religion and tourism to the political operation of power.

Campaner studied architecture at the University of Sydney and painting at Sydney College of the Arts. She has held a number of solo exhibitions in Sydney and group exhibitions including Imaginary Geographies, Wellington, New Zealand (2011); Home Sweet Home: Works from the Peter Fay Collection, National Gallery of Australia, Canberra (2003); and Blake Prize for Religious Art, Sir Hermann Black Gallery, Sydney (2003). Campaner’s work has been collected by several private and corporate collections, as well as by the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; City of Sydney, Sydney; National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; and Artbank, Sydney.
