New Blood Art Statement

A Falmouth University Fine Art graduate, Greenwell uses intricate detail to capture the ebb and flow of nature. Greenwell details the steady decay of organic matter over the time of her studies - capturing how nature changes shape, shrivels, or disappears over time… 

Artist Statement

The most important thing in my practice is keeping detail at the centre of all my work and using the intricate pointillist and drawing process as the catalyst for the rest of my practice. I take the movement of line and repetition of mark making from my drawing into three-dimensional sculpture and print.

Nature has always inspired my practice, the intricacy of organic forms and the way they grow, move, and intertwine with one another. Each individual vein of a leaf flowing into the next. It is what inspires my fine metalwork, as I weave and move the metal, bending and folding each piece meticulously. The way you can look at a vein growing up a tree and see a tangle of networks and systems all chaotically intertwined and growing as one, yet if you dismantle the vein piece by piece there becomes an ordered, simple yet incredibly detailed form that has grown wildly over time. In the process of making, I use a similar concept. Starting with a simple, small piece of metal that is detailed and ordered, each plasma cut hole carefully placed and each tiny rod welded together to create a curvaceous flow. However, in my construction process all these individually cut pieces of metal become one, joined to become a tangle of metal that replicates these wildly expansive natural systems that grow without direction.

Similarly, in my drawings I spends hundreds of hours drawing each individual dot with a 0.05 fine liner pen. My original drawings ranging between 150-200 hours to complete a single A3 work. However, that meticulous, repetitive process becomes a network or overlapped ink when I begin to take my original drawing and screen print sections of it with other sections. I gradually lose the original subject of the tree ring or leaf and move towards an increasingly abstract and interesting network of lines that gets lost in the growth.
