Eloise Dethier-Eaton is a Belgo-British artist working across mediums including drawing, painting, printmaking and photography.
In her compositions, she combines drawings of objects and images from personal and collective archives - found throughout her travels, art history, the internet and so on. In doing so, she investigates the ways in which meaning and narrative can arise from bringing these diverse components together.
Each individual object and image has a story to tell from the moment it is created, shaped by the cultural factors that are embedded in them. As they go from hand to hand, they also acquire new meanings through the eyes of their beholders. Eloise enjoys using still life to explore alternative narratives through a visual pairing process, playing with pattern and analogy to map out the interconnectedness of things.
She also draws upon the decorative and the ornamental to reflect on subjects like the environmental challenges we face today, and to question the validity of our construct of culture as independent from nature. She confronts these types of issues by combining dark humour with pictorial joyfulness.
Eloise graduated from a Fine Art & History of Art degree at Goldsmiths in 2018. She currently works as a paper marbler at Marmor Paperie and dedicates the rest of her time to her own studio practice in South London.
