ELIZA KENTRIDGE
Wivenhoe

Born in Johannesburg, Eliza studied English Literature before working for an anti-apartheid educational organisation. She then studied drawing and printmaking at Oxford and moved to Wivenhoe in 1990. Her fabric works combine a linear quality with the spontaneity of collage. 

She draws her references from historical textiles, such as Ghanaian Fante Flags, European samplers and the folk art traditions of domestic fabrics such as Indian and Middle Eastern blankets, rugs and clothing., but the images are often based on her own drawings. 

The work is characterised by the use of bold colour and its subjects are often animals and people depicted in domestic narratives. Eliza has exhibited in Colchester, the University of Essex, Harrogate and London and has forthcoming exhibitions in Johannesburg and Gateshead.
