Elizabeth Barnett / MELBOURNE

Elizabeth Barnett is a visual artist whose practice encompasses printmaking, painting, illustration and textiles. Elizabeth’s detailed and dreamlike narratives combine playful naivety with a finely honed aesthetic sophistication. Elizabeth’s primary training in Printmaking has instilled in her an appreciation and love of fine materials and classical techniques and processes.

In this series of prints I have created spaces that are personal, private and filled with beloved objects. They capture beautiful and quiet moments and offer momentary rest and sanctuary from everyday life. These spaces are lived in and warming, filled with plant life, half-eaten pieces of toast on ceramic plates, an open book, modernist chairs, coffee cups, pot plants and beds.
