Eleanor Wood

Born in 1955 - United Kingdom


biography under completion

Eleanor Wood is a British artist who was born in 1955 in London. She studied at Hornsey School of Art, Winchester School of Art and Chelsea School of Art. For many years she was based in Norfolk near the east coast of England. Here she was surrounded by expanses of arable fields, huge skies, and the vast open beaches that edge the North Sea. Both this particular landscape and the Californian light have had an impact. In 2002 she moved to Central California and now divides her time between there and Norfolk.

At first glance work of Eleanor Wood appears to have strong affinities with recent Minimalist art. They are distinct, however, in being acutely tactile and imaginatively open-ended evoking wide ranging haptic, as well as visual, associations that give the work a wistful sense of age and wear. This sense is reinforced by the fact that support and medium are so thoroughly and skillfully fused that it is all but impossible to distinguish them.

The works are made in series and typically exhibited in groups.

She has exhibited in Britain, The Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Russia, Latvia, Australia, and the United States, and her works are found in the collections of Arts Council England, The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts, The Crocker Museum, Sacramento, The Progressive Arts Collection and the University of the Arts, London.
