Eloise Dethier-Eaton is a Belgo-British artist working across the media of 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 etc. In doing so, she investigates the ways in which meaning and narrative can arise from bringing diverse elements together.
Each individual object and image has a story from the moment it is created, influenced by cultural and social 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 this 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 hopes to confront 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 studio apprentice at Marmor Paperie and dedicates the rest of her time to her own studio practice in South East London.
