Hand-coloured portrait of a bird-like spirit, immobilised in marble, cleansing in a spring-time bath. A character formed from Naiads (a Greek nymph of flowing water), and exploring the idea of a ritualistic cleansing to wash away sombre deeds.
Taken from The Sialia Marbles, a series of portraits containing ephemeral human sculptures taken between 2016-19. Together these works act as tales contained in a fictional sculpture hall, in direct reaction to Andre Malraux's 1947 Le Musee Imaginaire (Museum Without Walls).
Katie Eleanor (b.1993) is a photographic artist living and working in London. She studied Photographic Arts at the University of Westminster, graduating in 2015. Her practice revolves around illustrating enigmatic narratives that bridge the gap between fantasy and reality. Once she has a concept for her stories, she paints the performers, designs and makes the costumes, and creates the sets to photograph them.
Using analogue photography and contemporary printing techniques, the resulting black and white prints are then meticulously hand- coloured by the artist. Katie's work has received press by The Royal Photographic Society, and her fashion stories have been published by magazines such as Hunger and Notion.
Her latest body of work, The Sialia Marbles, presented at MMX Gallery, was her second exhibition in the gallery and her first solo show. Her work has been recently sold to numerous private art and photography collections.
