Eleanor Rahim

I need to make rhythmic sense of my sometimes chaotic and visually stimulating environment. The textures and shapes found in the city, the colors and movement of the ocean, the patterns on rugged rocks, the intricate details of coral and the gesture of the figure are typical of my inspirations. Also at play are the images and patterns of organic tissue that were a constant in my childhood, through my late father’s work in a hospital Histology Department laboratory. My father made use of my drawing skills to render images and diagrams of medical microscope slides. His work has seeped into my subconscious. Application and subtraction of layers of paint where these elements flicker in and out of visibility, sometimes eclipsing what has gone before, builds up with time, movement and emotion.
