Oil on panel
45 x 54 in.
Over the past two decades the figure has served as a vehicle of continuous investigation in Eltringham’s studio practice, and the work has always been closely tied to personal experiences. His current production is organized around a variety of motifs addressing specific conceptual concerns including issues of gender, location, identity, and transformation. The work comments and reflects on social dynamics, questionable behavior, habitation, and the limits of personal comfort. The overall practice continues to engage with the legacy and relevance of painting, positioning in relation to historic models with awareness of the current time and circumstances. Eltringham continues to question the current dialog regarding painting not being able to express the moment. He states, “I understand the argument, but I don’t buy it.”
