An artist obsessed by line form, Puckette grew up in Tennessee and is married to the artist Hugo Guinness. Interestingly, their beautiful home has been featured in Vogue Living, Houses, Gardens and People.
Here is an image from their feature in Vogue Living.
Her striking images leave a lasting impression and I just can’t seem to get them off my mind these days. Her work is exhibited at the famous Paul Kasmin Gallery and the Earl McGrath Galler, both in New York City.
And here is one of Elliott’s paintings in a home in Elle Decor
I have enjoyed several posts by Courtney Barnes on her blog, Style Court, regarding Elliot Puckette and the influence of calligraphy in Puckette’s artwork. Courtney does an amazing job of tracing the beautiful origins of calligraphy and decorative arts in a fascinating post which highlight’s a rich history of script that shines through Puckette’s modern work which you can read here..
Here are traditional calligrapher’s tools which are used to produce the elaborate script.
And here is a close up image of the penknives used to etch the script.
I look forward to seeing more work from her, and of course more posts from Style Court.
