Eleanor May Watson: Vibrant Life
October 14, 2022
Former winner of the ACS Studio Residency at the City & Guilds of London Art School, Eleanor May Watson, is currently presenting a solo exhibition at Meakin + Parsons in partnership with Hannah Payne.

Vibrant Life includes a series of brand-new paintings presented for the first time at Meakin + Parsons in Oxford.


The title of the exhibition encapsulates the intensity of living experience that related to the artist’s energetic use of colour and gestural marks.


Of her artistic practice, Watson stated that it ‘is important for me to move between medium and larger scales, I think it is to do with invention and reinvention. The world of a small painting relates to but works entirely differently to that of a large piece. Watercolour pushed me to explore chance; oil paint enables me to experience colour and gesture more vividly.’


Until 29 Oct 2022
