BUY ELRIE"S WORK HERE
Elrie is a Bloemfontein-based visual artist. She completed both her BA Fine Arts degree and MA at the University of the Free State. She has been teaching in the tertiary sector since 2010 and is currently lecturing (printmaking, drawing and theory) at the Central University of Technology in Bloemfontein.
At the heart of her conceptual work lies her interest in the act of collecting, as well as her collector’s tendency to turn the unexceptional into something precious. Objects from Elrie’s personal collection become her subject matter, and she uses and reworks them to reveal personal experiences and sometimes flawed memories.
These reworkings often take the form of drawings and printmaking. Although her preferred printing techniques are relief printing and etching, as a printmaking lecturer she also regularly produces silkscreens and monoprints.
