“I’ve done lots of queen paintings. They are also a site for a similar struggle where I want to break through. I want to make paintings of women where they are actually shouting.

According to Jack Hanley Gallery, ”…Eleanor Moretonʼs paintings call into question the relationship of authoritative women and symbolic masculine attire. She seamlessly glosses together polemic historical images to create new potentials.”
CommentArt.com excavates the superficial, visual aspects of Eleanor’s artwork to find the underlying essence, “There are a number of themes which run through Eleanor Moreton’s work. These themes reflect her interest in psychoanalysis and gender, in history and literature. What links them is a commitment to the imaginary, the fictional and a preoccupation with the way the images of the imagination become paintings.”
