Elizabeth Claire Rose’s practice as an artist begins with the study and research of parallel places and ecosystems. She observes and identifies how they mirror each other’s function and form, and how through their similarities they are able to exhibit uniqueness. Studying these sites is especially important in the face of climate change, as highly sensitive places like islands and alpine areas become more vulnerable to fluctuating temperatures, e.g. rising lake and sea levels, which in turn impacts the survival of flora and fauna in these vulnerable landscapes. Awareness of the presence of indicator species demonstrates the geographic range of ecological connectivity, as well as indicate the zonal shifts within a warming climate.

Referencing her own experiences traveling through altitudinal zones to alpine areas, and across latitudinal lines, she creates work which connects geographically disconnected landscapes focusing on their shared ecologies: how each site is connected through climatic shifts, soil qualities, and habitat range. She repetitively reworks traditional copperplate matrices, often in combination and collage with photo-lithography, and photography to extract observations, uncovering cultural and natural histories.
