Eleanor P. Boyden

My practice is an expressive meditative response to the world and humanity found within it. Like the many layers of our humanness, I create layers mirroring our individual state of life, both higher states alongside those that we seek to rise above. Within the work, you can see some states represented are thin and bright while others are thick and bold. I find my process very intuitive, and I’m attracted to bright glorious neon colours. My latest work comes from a controlled state stemming from a series of line drawings. 

While watching people engage with my work, I’m always struck by how they are moved physically. They turn their heads and arch their bodies to find the best entry point, sometimes walking so close to the canvas, their nose is a mere inch or two away, allowing themselves to be physically surrounded by my marks and colours. While other times they stand far back, taking in the entirety of the canvas. 

Through my artistic practice, I continue to seek, question, ponder, and explore the mystery of the world around me, in the hope of sharing the wonderment and joy with the viewer.
