Eleanor Watson

Eleanor Watson paints empty spaces; allowing for the room and its contents to set a scene for stories. The objects described in varying detail are given a similar weight to props on an empty stage. What is immediately familiar and recognisable is undermined by the flattened rendering of the objects and the incongruous use of colour. The paintings retain a likeness to the printed image; particularly in the way in which negative spaces are layered in order to describe the objects. Eleanor encourages a literary feeling of description. Clues as to whose story is being told are everywhere, although most questions are left unanswered. Biography Eleanor Watson attained her BA in Fine Art: Painting from Wimbledon College of Art (2012) and has since had a solo show at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea; a joint exhibition at The Mall Galleries; was included in the RA Summer Exhibition and was shortlisted for the Young Masters Prize 2014.
