ABOUT

 

Eleanor Johnson (b.1994) is a British artist currently living and working in London. 

Through exploring portraiture and abstraction, her main body of work focuses on the inherent disconnection of society, which is being exacerbated by our contemporary culture. She explores the fleeting encounters as experienced between strangers, compared to the personal intimacy felt between loved ones. By looking at themes such as death and the ephemerality of life, her work tries to capture a sense of time suspended in space, freezing something in motion.

in her most recent work she explores the social implications of the female body, as women increasingly feel they have to adhere to a certain criteria of appearance, as influenced by the rise in the proliferation of images, specifically as seen through social media.
