The Alan Cristea Gallery will unveil new works by Etel Adnan in the artist’s first solo exhibition, entitled 'Etel Adnan: Elsewhere' at the gallery from 28 February – 30 March 2019.

About

Adnan was born in 1925 in French-speaking Beirut to a Syrian father and a Greek mother. Her international roots and her studies in philosophy in Paris and the USA led to her fascination with language. It was not until the artist was thirty-six that she turned to painting as a means of artistic expression, a move that was prompted, in part, by her decision to stop writing in French following the Algerian War in the early 1960s. 

More recently, Adnan has incorporated printmaking into her practice, and our exhibition features a selection of prints created over the past year and a half. For this new body of etchings, Adnan depicts mountains, skylines, sunsets, oceans, and vast stretches of land from memory.

Having found expression in poetry, scholarship, painting and now printmaking, her work is a testament to a deep curiosity and engagement with the world, be that political, personal or physical.
