  • Maker in Focus: Janine Partington & exploring colour and line through mark-making into leather

    • Saturday, 15 June 2019 - Saturday, 27 July 2019 at 10:00 - 17:00
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free

    This exhibition presents new leather wall panels, vessels and brooches by Janine Partington, one of our most popular makers, recently selected for the prestigious Collect Open.

    Janine_Partington_Precarious_2018_23x18cm_carved_and_coloured_leather_panelJanine is best-known for her craft of enamelling with fresh, clean, contemporary design, also included in the show.

    In June 2018, Janine completed a part-time MA in Design with distinction at the University of the West of England and she made the creative leap into working with a very traditional material, leather, in a fresh, contemporary and unique way.

    Drawing on past experiences with printmaking, bookbinding and embroidery Janine has explored mark making through the carving and painting of leathers to create distinctive and appealing surfaces. Her pieces often become abstracted landscapes. However, her inner need for harmony means there is a deeply ingrained subconscious check that ensures a balanced final composition.
