About  

 

Eleanor Wang (b.1994, London) is an artist who works predominantly with painting alongside a more collaborative practice involving performance.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 

These works are diaristic representations of behaviours and actions I have observed and continue to look for in daily life. Depicting holiday reading positions; backseat sports commentary; family portraits and park-based rehearsed movements, the paintings and drawings are a personal commentary that scratch the surface of the performance of everydayness.
