An exhibition of drawings
by ANGELA EAMES
5 – 26 August 2018
Artist Talk: Saturday 18th August, 2-4pm
Angela Eames will read four short stories contextualising the work.
My practice explores the intermediate territory between the real and the virtual, between awareness and ignorance, between material and ethereal. This territory emerges from the realms of physical matter and the electronic: places wherein we operate with an assumed confidence that we are totally aware of our placement and our surroundings, when perhaps the opposite is the case. We watch our TV, mobile, laptop and pad screens and believe what we are seeing. We inhabit a world where fantasy not only meets reality but becomes it. Central to the work is an interest in the material and virtual spaces we view and inhabit as spectator or participant and the placement of ourselves and objects within those spaces. When I work within virtual space my experience is that I am entering a parallel spatial environment to that of the drawing studio. My response to objects and space is equivalent but different. Gravity is missing!
