Town House is delighted to welcome Eleanor Crow back in November for A Step Inside: an exhibition of oil paintings of interiors and still lifes, mostly in London commercial and domestic settings.
Eleanor worked for ten years on a series of London shopfront exteriors in watercolour, which were exhibited here in 2019 and feature in her book Shopfronts of London. During that time, she became interested in the spaces inside too and this forms the basis of her new body of work. Light falls gently across the interiors of shops, kitchens and domestic settings and although many of these are working spaces they are mostly unpeopled, all shown in quiet, contemplative moments with attention focused on the objects which define each space. Across the pots, brushes and baskets, across the lines of bottles and jars: in variation and repetition each gives these spaces their particular quality.
Always attracted to half seen views through doors, Eleanor offers us all a glimpse in, a step inside…
Eleanor Crow: A Step Inside 20th November – 5th December in the gallery at Town House, no booking required.
All the works will be available to view on the website shortly before the opening of the exhibition.
And a video of the exhibition is now available to view on Youtube here
