Eleanor Louise Butt
Eleanor Louise Butt makes process led paintings using a personal language of recurring shapes, negative space and distinctive colour. Built-up forms act out movements that describe, however abstractly, a personal cartography. Sketches and gestures create links and pathways. Through these applications and erasures, Eleanor’s canvases become a diaristic site for posing questions and receiving answers, generating agency through an intimate and reciprocal relationship between artist and object. Eleanor has a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) from the Victorian College of the Arts.
