Eileen White is an artist living and working in Winchester, Hampshire. Her interdisciplinary practice is based on researched narratives, collaboration and an exploration of place, as a means of investigating themes relating to time and value.
Her work relies heavily on a relationship with materials and process in particular paper and print. The haptic is a constant in her work as well as her tactic language of process and methodology. Her tactile manual processes allow for reflection and embodiment through the documentation and recording of time.
Using meditative, durational and embodied processes and materials, she continues to develop a specific material language, which is rooted in the domestic, textiles and alternative printmaking in the broadest sense.
Her current work develops these themes by referencing photographic analogue processes and gestural mark-making. Using alternative photography and printing techniques she continues to develop physical and meditative processes to capture a fleeting moment and illustrate a narrative about place.
Eileen is currently artist in residence at Mottisfont, National Trust. 2018
