Constructing Narrative, an exhibition of new work by artist Eleanor Brennan will be on display in University Hospital Galway until 12 March on the Arts Corridor.
Eleanor Brennan has an MA in Art Therapy, from Crawford College of Art and Design Cork and a B.A. in Fine Art from Cluain Mhuire GMIT Galway. She has exhibited widely including the Department of Art Therapy & Continuing Visual Education Sullivan’s Quay, Cork, Waterford Healing Park, Dungarvan Arts Centre, the Arts Millennium Building NUI, Galway, Black Church Print Studio/Original Print Gallery Temple Bar Dublin, Galway Museum and 126 Gallery Galway.
Her art practice is rooted in the self with the images created a combination of sights seen and experiences felt. Having a background in Art Psychotherapy, she is fascinated by the human psyche and how the image provides us a way of connecting to self, containing and communicating our thoughts, feelings and ideas.
She creates drawings mainly of trees, roots, children, animals and birds, set sometimes in dreamlike landscapes. Eleanor states: ‘I am drawn to work which is unfinished in appearance and feel this mirrors the transitory nature of feelings and thoughts and references an unfixed sense of self.’
