Eleanor Bartlett (b.1951, Wiltshire) began her practice in 2007 with a two-year period drawing natural forms and patterns. She then commenced painting and sculpture using industrial materials of tar and wax to describe form. The work continues to develop the relationship with form and material, moving towards a monumental purity.

“This work continues an on-going series describing elemental form, painted with tar. Tar has an industrial beauty suggestive of toil and endurance and it is the behaviour of this material that really drives the work.

The drawings evolved from a period of study at Bridge House in 2016 concentrating on the rich seam of feral activity, metal container and general destruction at the local recycling centre.” Eleanor Bartlett, 2016
