Eleanor Fein’s enigmatic paintings locate familiar plants, flowers, animals and birds within mysterious and unknown landscapes giving them a magical and dream-like quality. These beautifully observed characters from the natural world play with light, scale, reflection and the blurring of boundaries between fantasy and reality to create a visual experience which is at once uplifting and intriguing.
Magic Realism developed as an art movement in the years after World War I. For many decades thereafter numerous artists throughout Europe and subsequently in the Americas crafted a representational art, mixed with elements of fantasy. This powerfully engaging art was often typified by remarkable detail and sharp focus. The form that it takes taps into the viewers emotional reservoirs by hiding unexpected or suggestive content in what at first might seem to be a common or ordinary scene.
This beautiful exhibition includes over thirty new paintings by the artist and will intrigue and engage all collectors and art enthusiasts alike.
