Elizabeth Porter, makes extraordinary pieces from the detritus found on walks in towns and along the byways of the countryside. wood, seeds, bark, a birds nest, ash from a night fire, a piece of metal who’s original use is long forgotten. Examining relationships of disparate materials: charcoal and agate, gold and ash, tissue paper and water, pebbles, sewing together leaves, to make guns, forming masks, animals, shelters.
Creating magical, ethereal objects and drawings which will make you look again at how our world is made.
Porter graduated from the Ruskin School of Art in 2009 & completed her MA in sculpture at the Royal College of Art. She is a member of the Office of Public Ritual.
