January show at Black Swan Arts

Story posted on

An exhibition by artist Eleanor Bartlett is opening at Black Swan Arts in Frome on 5th January called ‘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 will take place on Friday 4th January from 6–8pm – everyone is welcome to come along. Eleanor will also be taking part in an artist’s Q&A, ‘Does art have to mean anything?’ on Friday 1st  February from 6–7pm. For further information visit www.blackswanarts.org.uk.
