Lucid — Prints + Paper Sculpture
By stripping imagery down to line, shape, and volume the work in Lucid provides a simplified language to communicate larger concepts of connection and unity. In our modern lives the opportunities to pause and reflect are being crowded out, this work offers a space in which to resist and counterbalance that tendency.
Eleanor Annand grew up on the southern tip of the coast of North Carolina. She received her Bachelors of Graphic Design from North Carolina State University where she focused on typography and letterpress. After a range of design and letterpress experience from IBM to Yee-Haw Industries, between North Carolina and Colorado, she landed in the Core Fellowship program at Penland School of Crafts. In the Core program, Eleanor investigated printed, drawn, carved, and painted lines on paper, metal, and enamel. Her studio is currently located in Asheville, NC where she creates drawings, painting, and sculpture from steel and paper.
People have used mark making as a means to express visual ideas for thousands of years. Stick to sand, pen to paper we pass on our history. The uniqueness of one person's mark to the next, the expressive qualities of a line and the development of visual history are at the root of my work.
