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 and so on. 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 it. As they go from hand to hand, they also acquire new meanings through the eyes of their beholders. Eloise enjoys using still life to bring these diverse components together and explore her own curious narratives. By playing with pattern and analogy, she maps out the interconnectedness of things through this visual pairing process.
She also draws upon the decorative 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 with 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.
