Event description

Description

Portrait Lab is about Eleanor Hannan’s interest in the portrait through process, expression, technique, meaning, facial design and structure, materials, scale and drawing. Yet all of the pieces are (in one way or another) embroidery, so that too is an element that makes its contribution to the overall impact of the exhibition in terms of variety of styles and stitches as communicators of experience and expression.

The Portrait Lab suggests a place where there is not just a single chemical element brewing. The element of the artist’s way of experiencing the portrait is introduced alongside another to generate a new way of knowing and seeing the portrait both for the viewer and herself. A new reaction is inevitable.
