Textured abstract work in rich earthy colours, characterises the style of young student artist Eleanor Kidd, whose inspiration is drawn from her childhood environment, as she explains:
I'm inspired by nature - primarily the very rural part of South Wales where I grew up and experienced first hand the relationship between agriculture and the natural world.
The intricate cycles and subtle webs between animals and the land really interests me; the mutually dependent relationship between the two and the way they both need each other to grow.
The sun helps the grass to grow, the grass gives energy to animals, the animals feed their children, the children grow and so the cycle continues.
When an animal dies, it decays and its energy seeps back into the ground, enriching the soil helping the grass to grow, and so the cycle continues.
