“Antediluvian landscapes, lost worlds and buried cities. The opulent darkness of scorched growths, milky surfaces striated with sandy estuaries, flowing ripples of textured rustiness. Ostensibly abstract, Eleanor Lakelin’s vessel-shaped sculptures abound in metaphorical resonance. They speak to the hand and to the soul, conjuring sensory imaginings and visual narratives. They share an equal timelessness and sense of urgency.” – Dr. Melanie Vandenbrouck. Curator of Sculpture at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
The gallery will publish its inaugural exhibition catalogue this summer for Eleanor Lakelin’s highly anticipated solo exhibition, UnEarthed.
The catalogue includes an illuminating essay by Dr. Melanie Vandenbrouck, Curator of Sculpture at the Victoria & Albert Museum, UK, and an interview with Eleanor Lakelin and Sarah Myerscough that delves deep into the artist’s practice and inspirations. The catalogue offers a true insight into her studio at Cockpits Arts studio in Deptford, London, while exquisitely commissioned photographic images capture her new series of monumental column pieces and sculptural vessels created over the last two years in extraordinary detail and depth.
