The power of form standing alone as an artwork is and idea key to Euphrosyne Andrews’ practice. Her work is concerned with the history of ornament, it’s circulation in relation to the multiple and the domestic connotations of ornamentation resulting from the materials that are commonly associated with it. Printmaking processes underpin her work, exploiting the traditional relationship with the multiple alongside the use of unique motifs. She is particularly interested in ornament’s uncertain position within contemporary fine art, and it’s origins. Stemming from a ban of representation in many religions, ornament can be traced through abstract art through to to contemporary art today.
Euphrosyne is planning to move to London in September to take up a place on the Royal Drawing Year, run by the Prince’s Trust. This is a course split between studio practice and taught classes, with the use of print facilities.
