12 January – 5 April 2015
Elizabeth Rowe has an art practice rooted in drawing and collage. Her drawings involve the use of pen, pencil, gel pens, ink and silkscreen printing to build layers of colour on photographs taken from broadsheet newspaper print and popular magazines. Her collages involve the careful selection of seemingly disparate found images sourced from women’s magazines, National Geographic volumes, and old books in the artist’s personal collection. The various collage components are assembled and reassembled incrementally, before being applied directly to a surface.
