Eleanor Bartlett was born in Wiltshire and began her practice in 2007 with a two-year period drawing natural forms and patterns. She then commenced painting and sculpture using industrial materials of tar and wax to describe form. The work continues to develop the relationship with form and material, moving towards a monumental purity. Her work is held in private collections and she is s frequent exhibitor and prizewinner at Black Swan Open Arts in Frome. In 2016 she had solo exhibitions at Drawing Projects UK in Trowbridge and at Trowbridge Town Hall. This year, Bartlett has embarked on a solo commission for Salisbury Cathedral Cloisters, which coincided with the Nine Painters exhibition at Syson. These projects are documented in a publication designed by Joff & Ollie. Bartlett also recently had a solo exhibition at Tintype in London.
