Eleanor Moreton

Date of birth 05.Apr.56
Country of residence United Kingdom

There are a number of themes which run through Eleanor Moreton’s work. These themes reflect her interest in psychoanalysis and gender, in history and literature. What links them is a commitment to the imaginary, the fictional and a preoccupation with the way the images of the imagination become paintings.

She is the 2007 - 8 Durham Cathedral Artist in Residence and studied at Chelsea College of Art and UCE Birmingham.
