Eleanor May Watson - Curtains Drawn

Eleanor's paintings convey a shift towards looking inwards, of privacy, of shutting out the world, the cold, the dark and being enclosed in a space with the warmth of the evening.

Curtains Drawn suggests the act of creating an atmosphere of solace, intimacy and tenderness, but also evokes pulling the curtains open in the morning, allowing for the light of the day to enter, to illuminate and bathe in warmth.

Moving towards a more intuitive language of painting, Eleanor plays with fragments, absence, collaging and veils. The artist uses images she has taken at moments of contentment in her life as starting points to explore the layered experience of time.
