Eleanor Merritt, a native New Yorker,received both BA and MA degrees in Fine Art and Education from Brooklyn College CUNY.
Her paintings are semi-abstract and very introspective.
"My subject matter continues to emerge as very personal revelations through the combined use of acrylics, inks, fabrics, and collage. I continuously use figures as a symbolic reference to my point of view that is not always obvious to the viewer, but hopefully providing visual interaction until further investigation reveals the concept," she says.
Eleanor has had more than 25 one-woman shows during the past 40 years. More work can be seen at her website: eleanormerritt.com and at the Art Uptown Gallery.
