Eleanor Barlett is coming to Black Swan Arts Long Gallery with a show called ‘Matter’.
Her work is created with unusual and challenging materials such as tar and metal paint.
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.
She will be giving an artists Q&A session where she invites you to discuss “Does art have to mean anything?”. The talk is free of charge and open to everyone.
