Eleanor Bartlett - Matter

Eleanor Bartlett - Matter

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.’
The preview takes place on Friday 4 January from 6–8pm – everyone is welcome to attend.
Eleanor will be taking part in an artist’s Q&A, ‘Does art have to mean anything?’ on Friday 1 February from 6–7pm.
