Eleanor Carlingford

This painting is one of 11 works featuring in Eleanor’s 2019 solo show, Paladin On The Ramparts.

Show statement:

“I had ten days on my own in Malaga in September 2018, and it is my experiences there which have coalesced into Paladin on The Ramparts. It all came together in a haphazard way. I didn’t think about what I was doing but simply had experiences and kept up a sketchbook. I was lonely and fulfilled at the same time. I visited the Pompidou Centre there and was very moved by the Dubuffet exhibition “Handsomer Than They Think”. I loved the Roman artefacts in the Museum, ate a lot of fish, saw some arthouse movies in French and had a shoal of barracuda swim close under me while snorkelling, bought sunglasses and drew every day on a tiny tile which I found on the beach, and every day erased it ready for the next day. I don’t know why I chose to do these things…”
