Received Ellie Brennan


Eston Arts Centre is pleased to announce the first solo show of North East artist, Ellie Brennan. She returns to Teesside to show a range of different objects, with a number of brand new works having been made during the lockdown period.

Her work is a deeply personal exploration of memories and nostalgia, and helps provide a therapeutic making environment in these stressful times. Her work is designed to break the 'look but don't touch' rule of many galleries, and she invites guests to interact freely with her pieces and create their own tactile experiences.

She utilises a range of techniques, from traditional crochet, to industrial rug tufting, but always aims to create work that is accessible to everyone, and doesn't shroud itself in complex art theory. Instead, she prefers to work with key memories from childhood and adolescence, and create pieces that hopefully resonate with a wider audience, and help to make 'fine art' more accessible for all.
