Elisabeth Deane (b 1985) is a painter who uses ancient traditional techniques to create work with an entirely contemporary aesthetic. The colours and detailed brushwork are inspired by Islamic geometry and the miniature painting traditions of India and Iran.

Many of the colours are stone based – lapis lazuli, malachite and cinnabar – and have been ground painstakingly by hand. The abstract geometric nature of Elisabeth’s work represents the simple and the universal, the micro and the macro and the interplay between these dichotomies.

While studying at the University of Cambridge in 2011, Elisabeth won the Helga Todd Foundation Award and spent two months working in Santiniketan, West Bengal. It was this experience that led to her initial interest in the artistic traditions of India. While there Elisabeth was inspired by the works of Bengali polymath Rabindranath Tagore; both his writings (the title of the show comes from the poem ‘The Stream of Life’ by Tagore), and his paintings. Elisabeth has since returned to India and studied under Master miniature painters in Rajasthan.
