About

Eleanor Aldrich’s mixed media painting “The Net Hammock” is a textural rendering of a figure resting in a sprawling hammock. Made of oil, enamel, silicone, caulking, and found transfers on canvas, “The Net Hammock” is one of ten paintings in Aldrich’s 2019 show “Main Squeeze” at Channel to Channel. The painting is more explicitly figural than others in the series, however our gaze is still averted and met only with the nape of the neck, perfectly framed through a parting of hair. The delicately rendered hammock recalls a spiderweb and contrasts against the rock formations in the background. Making contact with flesh, the hammock’s gauziness is replaced by bulging shapes that transform the painting into a physical encounter, breaking the pictorial space. “The Net Hammock” belongs to a series that ArtForum described as “paintings that zero in on the flesh of human figures, which physically pushes through the pictorial mesh of lawn chairs, hammocks, and chain-link fencing with silicone, paint, and found materials.”
