Graduated in Ceramic Design from London’s Central Saint Martins in 2021, Eleanor is a British-born Belgian multidisciplinary artist who employs a variety of materials making textural works of art. The artist’s creative process begins in the garden of her studio in Antwerp, carefully digging and collecting soil to then mix it in with acrylics. The use of such an impasto gives prominence to her physical marks on the canvases: she indeed aspires to enable raw earth, inks and acrylic pigments to work coherently with one another and to be displayed as one.
Texture is the underlying narrative in her creative research and a signature aspect of Eleanor's work. Her practice is all about the material: the surfaces of her painting are rough, deep, textural and almost three-dimensional. The marks imprinted on her works are the result of organic movements, resembling a fracture, a permanent action, or even symbols with some hidden meanings.
