Does Art Have To Mean Anything?
Friday 1 February, 6–7pm.

Eleanor paints with materials such as tar and wax to produce highly textured and immersive works that have an extraordinary three-dimensional presence. From childhood, she has been fascinated with rivers and open water and this is reflected in the textures, form and sentiment of her work.

Eleanor says: ‘In the sense of non-representation, the materials here carry the weight of the idea. The tar, wax and metal paint are totally involved in the resolution of the painting, suggesting a democratic order of all form explicitly described in matter.’
