"Watch out for the bear behind you" (Front and back - 1992).




Angela Eames undertook her first Foundation in Art and Design at Johannesburg School of Art in South Africa then a second at Farnham School of Art. She studied Fine Art Painting at Bath Academy of Art in Corsham gaining a place to study Fine Art/Experimental place at the Slade School, London. Her work as both artist and teacher instigated a return to study in 1991, to complete a Masters in Computing in Art and Design at Middlesex University under the tutelage of John Lansdowne. As an artist whose practice has continuously involved the exploration of drawing in direct relation to technology, she received a Doctorate in Drawing at Wimbledon School of Art and the University of Surrey in 2000.

She produces both series and independent works and has exhibited continuously both nationally and abroad. The images on this website show her commitment to various themes that have run throughout a working life of some forty five years. She lives in East Sussex and continues to practice as an artist/drawer.

"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."
