An Interview with Artist Ellie Vandoorne

I was pleased to find Ellie Vandoorne, the artist in question, sat by the window. Armed with my microphone, she hid any hint of disapproval at the suggestion of an impromptu interview. Specialising in mixed media collage work, Vandoorne creates stylised female portraits worthy of the description, “iconic”.

Caught between Girlhood & Womanhood: Lunar Objects Theatre

“One girl, hundreds of questions”. That was the synopsis of Lunar Objects Theatre’s “Am I If”, a one-woman show that featured a series of anecdotes addressing the confusion of when you find yourself caught between girlhood and womanhood. Before I sat down to watch “Am I If?” I was intrigued by the idea of a solo act, I admit I was a little concerned. My scepticism came following my interview with them…

Jessica The Illustrator: Spotlight on Young Creatives

I feel a lot of responsibility to create work that tackles issues that affect women, more so than anything else. Not just because I identify as a female but because who else will?

Dedicated to the survival and support of emerging artists and curators, The Zabludowicz Collection has its own series, “Zabludowicz Collection Invites”, which is dedicated to providing solo presentations for UK-based artists who don’t yet have commercial gallery representation.

Space Tapestry (2017)

Female Artists: Aleksandra Mir’s Space Tapestry

I admire Mir’s collaborative approach because it provides a whole host of metaphors for what art is capable of doing. A whole team of people creating something impressive proves that art brings people together both in the gallery space and the creative process. I also think there’s something special about doing a show using materials that the majority have access to; the humble pen and paper.
