ART BY ELEANOR MAY & IAN MOSS
We are delighted to welcome Eleanor May & Ian Moss, who are exhibiting their artwork, at The Maeldune Heritage Centre.
Eleanor May is displaying a collection of paintings that seek to interpret the power and beauty of the natural world. Her boldly expressive paintings focus on our own part of the world for inspiration – featuring gentle landscapes, wild seascapes, places and spaces.
Ian Moss explores digital image glitches in his colour saturated canvasses. It's a 21st century problem made into art, and goes under the series title of 'Transmissions'.
Both artists took part in Maldon Art Trail last year – Eleanor at The Emporium and Ian at Reeves. In this exhibition, Ian will also be including a selection of the type of ‘artclocks’ and darkly witty 3d art seen there.
Ian was born in Maldon and grew up in Goldhanger – later attending The Plume School, He studied art at The North Essex School of Art in Braintree, Portsmouth, and Suffolk University. He set up and ran ‘Maldon Youth Arts Workshop’ at The Friary in the early 1990s – and after moving away to North Essex worked full-time running workshops for people with learning difficulties and challenging behaviours. Later, he was employed in a similar role within mental health environments.
Eleanor was born in Colchester, and spent her formative years in Great Bromley, North of Colchester – though was no stranger to Maldon. She studied art & design at The North Essex School of Art in Colchester, where her focus was on textile design. She went on to run her own trompe l’oeil mural business and also became a highly skilled restorer of fine Persian carpets.
Ian has fond memories of Goldhanger and the River Blackwater, and of the people and places of Maldon, and is delighted to be showing his art in a building he remembers as the public lending library. He still has many family members living in and around the town.
