Eerie is the word which first comes to mind when I see Eleanor Taylor’s collection of illustrations. Eleanor uses a mixture of paint, charcoal, ink and collage, adding a different dimension to her beautiful hand-drawn pieces. She takes inspiration from medieval comics, environmental apocalyptic science fiction, modernist architecture and Hieronymus Bosch’s vision of the after life. Combine all these crazy elements into one and out comes strange looking sea creatures, a male-female hybrid (not forgetting the fox on a stick) and an angry Blue Beard you wouldn’t want to mess with.
