Eleanor Moreton: Wodewose
30 May 2019 until 23 June 2019
Exhibition opening (free): Wednesday 29 May, 6-8pm
‘The Landscape that is so significant in Moreton’s work is often like an idyll – a kind of strange Arcadia – though one in which bad things have happened, or are destined to happen’ (Matt Price, The Anomie Review of Contemporary British Painting)
Eleanor Moreton’s paintings are colourful and full of strange characters. In her work she looks at the family structure and its inherent instability: although in a seemingly organised environment, her characters are surrounded by natural elements. In the presumably familial living room scenario, Moreton brings its volatile, unpredictable nature to the forefront. While seemingly sweet, tranquil and fairytale-like the depictions carry a notion of rigid structures being threatened by what is lurking in the shadows.
Eleanor’s loose kaleidoscope-like brushstrokes tell a story the liminal spaces where fantastical creatures accompany the protagonist in between worlds-be it the underworld, dreamworld or a conscious journey within.
