My name is Eleanor Grootoonk (1983), I am a visual artist/photographer/filmmaker.
I am especially interested in moving images developed through photography, video, 3D and everything that's happening in between. I make photo's, experimental short films and integrate moving images in multimedia installations. Sometimes film becomes a photo or collage. From time to time I do commissioned works.
A retruning topic in my work is the transcience of life. Often my work is missing a chronological narrative, time becomes frozen. I use a lot of desolated nature locations in my artworks. I make use of a visual language that is derived from our art history, the world around us and the media. Symbols, rituals, aesthetics and nature play an important role.
Next to creating, I teach fine art and design.
