ELRIE JOUBERT

Elrie Joubert is a Bloemfontein situated visual artist. She completed her B.A Fine Arts degree at the University of the Free State and went on to receive her M.A. (Fine Arts) from the same institution. Joubert has been teaching in the tertiary sector since 2010 and is currently lecturing (printmaking, drawing and theory) at the Central University of Technology in Bloemfontein.

An interest in the act of collecting and the collector’s tendency to turn the unexceptional into something precious forms the basis of her conceptual work. Objects from her personal collection become her subject matter that are used and reworked to reveal something of her personal experiences and sometimes flawed memories.

These reworkings often take form through drawings and printmaking. Her preferred printing techniques are relief printing and etching, but as a printmaking lecturer she also regularly produces silkscreens and monoprints.

Elrie is part of the Free State Art Collective.
