2009  MADE Art Prize



Elizabeth Jardine is a Brighton-based artist making paintings and papier-mache sculptures. After graduating from Falmouth College of Art in 2003 she has steadily been building up a career in the South East, setting up Crescent Studios with a colleague and winning the MADE Art Prize in 2009.  Her delightful sculptures playfully explore space, while her paintings radiate an unfolding, ethereal transcendence rooted in an earthy reality.  There is a sense of timelessness, of being drawn in, and surrounded by growing things, light, and depth.

Elizabeth spends much of her time outdoors, walking, and absorbing rural landscapes.  The sensations and compositions she finds in these places are relayed to the studio, where the slow process of building up the paintings takes place.  She finds a parallel between the activity of painting and the meditative effects of long distance walking, a state of simultaneous presence and absence.
