Hot Art: Elliott Wilcox’s Courtside Shots

Elliott Wilcox's Real Tennis 09

JANUARY 15 TO 29 Rarely do we think of sports fields divorced from the activity that occurs upon them. After all, what is a hockey rink without skaters? A baseball diamond minus pitcher and batter? It turns out that in the case of squash, racquetball and “real” tennis courts, there’s quite a lot to see. At Bau-Xi Photo, Elliott Wilcox reveals the geometric and textural beauty of these playing surfaces stripped of their action. The emerging British photographer’s images are painterly in their depictions of ball markings and service lines, exposing unnoticed corners, edges and crevices of these intimate spaces.
