The Embrace – hand-pulled screen print by Elsabé Milandri (2022)

We fell in love with one of Milandri’s life drawings at her Open Studio sale, and we knew it would make a beautiful screen print edition for our Meet-in-the-making range, our series that’s inspired by artists’ sketchbooks – conceived to invite intimate engagement with an artist’s creative process.
In Milandri’s words: “‘The embrace’ is based on a willow stick charcoal drawing on newsprint – a light, quick drawing of one of the most salient points of lived experience.”
She aptly describes the experience of life drawing as “all the mis-looking and re-looking, the feeling of shape and negative space, the gravity and lightness of limb and stretch, the process of it all.”
