Eleanor Moreton
British, born 1956

Meditations on longing, image making, and fables, Eleanor Moreton’s dark figurative paintings are rooted in literature, European history, and psychoanalysis. She is particularly drawn to fairytales and the fictions we create about ourselves individually and collectively. John William Waterhouse’s retelling of the Arthurian legend “The Ladies of Shalott” inspired a series of paintings for a 2010 exhibition. “I'm curious about the stories that we construct about ourselves as a group… a fiction which we often choose to believe because it's easier.”
