Eleonora Volpe is a self-taught sustainable artist active since 2022 based in NYC. Her experience with art started during childhood: she grew up in Italy surrounded by beauty and history and she absorbed every inch of that beauty. Art has always been the fundamental nourishment of life for her and her family.
Eleonora followed her creative nature and started working in NYC as a sustainable stylist and creative director in 2016. When the pandemic hit she found herself with a lot of free time and feelings to express.
During quarantine orders online skyrocketed and so did the amounts of cardboard boxes that were piling up in the trash of her condo. Feeling trapped in the house and going through the hardships of life she realized that trash was the actual solution: those cardboard boxes became the canvases of her art and her new life.
For the first time she started painting with the only goal of letting emotions free and repurposing waste material in a creative way. It started as a hobby and soon became a therapeutic part of everyday life and eventually evolved in a whole collection of paintings.
Eleonora’s creative process for her signature “visceral art” is rooted in feelings, it’s a trip into the deepest dreams, fears and desires.
It all starts with the intention to silence the rational and critic mind and let intuition and the deeper self speak. There is never a preplanned painting: every painting is the pure expression of the here and now.
After channeling the intention, she chooses the colors and then creates movements on the ‘canvas’ in a very fast, spontaneous way deepening into the process in a trans-like meditative and compulsive state.
What comes out of this process is an organic and abstract style that recalls visions and emotions.
Her paintings remind of vibrant natural elements in an abstract way. Macro and micro cosmos, where all the elements are alive, transforming and connected.
Every painting is unique and healing.
