Eleanor Zecchin is an artist and lecturer at Adelaide College of the Arts, Tafe SA & adjunct lecturer at Flinders University living and working on Kaurna Land. Her practice taps into real and imagined stories of belonging and longing. Divergent, seasonal motifs of nature and domesticity are loosely interpreted through shape, line and colour marking time and place.
‘Re-visited and Re-imagined Realities’ transports the viewer from the clinical space to a calm and often dreamlike landscape, showered with domestic and natural motifs.
Imbued with a sense of familiarity and longing, these artworks provide both respite and escape for audiences as Zecchin’s floating and intricate compositions offer continuous opportunities for discovery.
CCH is delighted to showcase this body of work in the Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre Gallery where patients spend long days, weeks and months. We hope it provides them much needed company and diversion.
I am a firm believer in ‘art everywhere and for all’ and see immense value in engaging my practice both within and beyond the studio and traditional gallery walls. I’m honoured to share my work within community spaces and hope my paintings can bring respite and escape for the viewer, as they have for me during their creation.
