Elle Brown is a Nottingham born artist who graduated from Falmouth University in 2020 and has continued living in Cornwall. In the last year she has been awarded the Cultivator graduate start-up award and completed a two month residency at the historical Porthmeor studios in St Ives. Along with co-founding a female sculpture collective and starting a framing business.
Brown's ongoing work is inspired by the story of the Greek prophet Tiresias, who is transformed into a woman by Hera. Fragments of the human form, represented through voyeuristic imagery, are pieced together to create androgynous and abstract shapes. Exploring this terrain through collage, print and sculpture, offers a commentary on the fragile and transitory existence of identity.
