Romsey Abbey – Mounted giclee print limited number 14/900

This beautiful limited edition giclee fine art print is signed and numbered on High White In The Tales Series Elizabeth uses drawing to investigate seemingly conflicting objects and animals with different surfaces and textures, she employs the single medium of a 2B pencil to investigate these. Through these incongruous compositions, a provoking and unusual narrative is created for the viewer, inspired by classic children’s literature specifically Beatrix Potter, Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland and Norton’s The Borrowers. She mimics Carrol’s and Norton’s inherent notions of scale and plays with these in her drawing. The drawings are often left unfinished as a way in for the viewer, a gifting.

One of the most entrancing characteristics of Elizabeth’s work is her ability to draw the viewer into her way of seeing the world where one takes nothing for granted and everything is new and interesting; an Alice like wonder at the beauty of unlikely objects. 315gsm Fine Art Paper. It is archivable and fade resistant. Once framed, it is close to impossible to tell the difference between the print and the original. Only 900 copies will be made of the original drawing to celebrate Romsey Abbey’s 900th anniversary year in 2020. Prints are presented with a backing board and wrapped in cellophane to protect them. A Certificate of Authenticity is attached to the backing board. Prints are signed and titled with the edition number on the front.

Dimensions 29.7 x 21 cm (A4 size for easy framing).

This beautiful building dates back to the 1850's and was a joy to draw as it has many fond memories for me. The drawing contains a sense of marking time, of documenting a moment in its history.

Approximate size – 28cm x 36.5cm
