Is There Something Not Reflected There?.jpg

Eleanor Carlingford


I make big, figurative paintings which are engaging and secure your attention. They are colourful, expressive and lyrical. They lure you in with their colour and promise of story, yet they are edgy and ask questions of the viewer. The paintings are an exploration of personal identity. They are asking of the viewer, why is it that this painting will not rest quietly before your eyes,
I also work with language, in written form and in song. The subject matter is always the same - questioning who I am, and what is the nature of a so-called "up-bringing", a heritage, a cultural context.
