Elena Putley

Elena Putley 4


Born and raised in Moldova, in the last 27 years Elena lived in Harrogate. Her paintings explore beauty, chaos and predictability of urban landscapes built up over time; cityscapes are derived from firsthand observations and from the internet, mirroring how specific locations are drawn together by their similarities. Without pre-sketching; her process is spontaneous and exploratory: the interplay of accident and intention, of control and uncertainty.

Studio experience

I will be very happy to show visitors my studio, my sketchbooks, work in progress and I could demonstrate some techniques and methods of work I use. I have many years of art teaching experience and this will be a natural extension of my everyday practice.
