Easton makes large-scale immersive installations formed from small-scale drawings of personal places. Recent work investigates her home interior, isolating elements through symmetrical dissection. A fireplace, a standing lamp or small fragments of wallpaper are then reconfigured into ‘whole’ new environments through a geometric grid made up of hundreds of panels.
Using the traditional techniques, oil on linen or copper plate etching, Easton reworks each section individually using weight, pressure and touch to offset the marks and then splices the pairs together to a complete composition.
