Dates:4 May 2013 to 14 May 2013

An exhibition of etchings, drawings and giclee prints by Eleanor Havsteen-Franklin, winner of the PUSHING PRINT solo show prize 2012

Eleanor’s work makes reference to macro and micro forms relating to sensed bodily and organic forms. Each composition brings together layers, textures, surfaces and formations to express a cohesion of forms that offer a unique entity.

In her etchings, a central method in her work is the interaction between intentional linear drawing and conditions that generate randomness. By encouraging foul biting in the etching process, random marks appear which form an ongoing dialogue. At times the surface become heavily textured and the tactility of the print is explored further with the use of stitching with the thread, echoing the drawn lines ‘as if’ emerging from the image.

Another part of her practice is the recurrence of form within different fields of colour. The repetition of multiple print colours are used as a vehicle to suggest different internal and external bodily and natural environments . The exhibition will feature a recent series of intimate etchings and drawings exploring the same themes.
