Eleonora Knowland: retrospective exhibition at The Bank

Eleonora Knowland : RETROSPECTIVE


The themes that seem to be a constant in my work are light, colour and simplicity. I aim to get to the essence of what I am painting without too much information getting in the way. I like the viewer to bring their own emotions and experiences to the work when they spend time looking at it.

Collecting together work for the retrospective has been very interesting, giving me an overview to my approach. I have also found it enjoyable seeing the work again; they feel like old friends.

Here are some pictures from the exhibition:
