A selection of work by UK-based artist and illustrator Eleanor Taylor. Taylor has illustrated book covers for Random House and Penguin as well as editorial illustrations for clients like The New York Times, Guardian and New Yorker Magazine. In addition to commissions, she works on her own paintings and drawings which draw largely from her surroundings and imaginative experience:
“My work centres around atmospheric landscapes that are both real and imagined. Constructed from old holiday snaps, frozen cinematic frames, observation and fragments of memory hazily pieced together. I am interested in the fuzzy area between what is real and what is not — between waking and sleeping. I live by the sea in the south of the UK and water seeps into my work…. I am drawn to its distorted reflections and see it as a portal to other worlds and unknown depths — a symbol of the unconscious.”
