Eleanor Gates-Stuart Biography: Eleanor Gates Stuart is a digital artist and well-established printmaker in her own right, recently producing ‘arcv.pls.txt.scrb.spc.spt.vs.eleanor.gates-stuart’, her documentary satire resulting from the re-media of video archive, publication, traditional print and transcript of gatescherrywolmark. In recent years she has chosen to work and exhibit collaboratively with many other artists, such as in her current Australian partnerships with designer, Zelda Trione and composer / sound artist, Lea Collins. Eleanor, Zelda and Lea all formed professional links and interest whilst working together at the Centre for New Media, ANU.

Their work has so far included exhibitions in the UK, Australia and USA, recent conference publications including a book entitled 'Disruptive Signals' (1999), and a digital video ‘Logical Aesthetics’ in collaboration with Paul Mosig and Jen Kingswell. * Eleanor graduated from Chelsea School of Art, London, in 1982, majoring in printmaking. Prior to her postgraduate degree, she had been awarded a fellowship at Sunderland University (formerly Sunderland Polytechnic) to continue her art practice and exhibit her work. A prestigious award given to a young artist following undergraduate degree studies. Since then, Eleanor continued to win residencies, a DAAD scholarship to work in Germany, awards, grants and commissions, maintaining an active international exhibition profile, curating and directing arts events and continuing her research. * Running parallel to her arts practice, Ele... to see complete biography, click on artist's name Country: Australia Birthyear: 2.10.57 Galleries: Not yet shown - new research Awards: 2004   Printmaker in Residence – Melago Print Workshop, Canberra, Australia (Awarded in 2003 – resident 2004) 2003   ACT Arts Quick Response Grant - Shipping works to Siggraph 2003 from Australia, Exhibition, San Diego, USA.
