Angela Eames, Fine Artist/Drawer...
Angela Eames is a practicing artist living and working in East Sussex. Images of her drawing practice can be seen in the portfolio pages of this website. She shows her work both nationally and internationally.
"Too much gloss - too much fine-tuning - too much surface - too much superficial sheen - too much polish. Not enough blemish - not enough imperfection - not enough foible - not enough fallibility - not enough spit. Masses of potential - loads of opportunities - plentiful solutions - permutations galore but not enough risk... and not enough spit!"
Eames takes raw data from her ongoing drawings/photographs, the web and planetary science archives and processes it, creating new scapes. She builds, composites and optimises her images, to produce unfamiliar images or landscapes - images foreign to everyday human experience. Her work is best defined by its intense but delicate craftsmanship and by the transformation of commonplace image/object into works of art. Eames contradicts the generic and mass-produced with something essentially handmade, imbuing her images with an unanticipated sense of place; here and/or there, now and/or then, in front of and/or behind. Her work generates a dialogue between modernity and history, observation and fabrication, nature and urbanity and the relationship between process and idea.
