Insta Find | Elizabeth Barnett

This week's find takes us to Australia and the work of artist, Elizabeth Barnett. Elizabeth's creative practice encompasses painting, printmaking and illustration and she just so happens to have an exhibit this month called ‘Herbal Medicine’ at TDF Collect in Melbourne.  The show researches further into the artist’s ongoing explorations of still-life, interiors, and botanical themes, featuring 12 new paintings on linen.

"Inspired by remedies for winter ailments, these paintings portray a connectedness to the environment and the garden, and present an intimate documentation
of the artist’s experiences of rural life, motherhood, and self-preservation".

We love her Instagram feed which is filled with paintings of everyday objects from plants to books.  Thank you to Design Files for the introduction! And you can follow Elizabeth on Instagram here. Let's take a look!

Her style is so joyful. It's obvious that she loves nature and has an intimate relationship with it. Her take on the traditional still life is wonderful!
