|As our REFLECTION SERIES continues, this week we will be looking back at renowned British artist Angela Eames.|
Angela, first showed with the gallery in August 2018 with her solo show –SCAPE. Since then she has been invited back every year as part of our Winter Group Show, as well as teaching a very popular drawing Masterclass.
|“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.” – (From Digital U Extremes Curator – Alejandro Ball)|
As part of our Linden Hall Studio – ‘in conversation’ series. Gallery Director Myles Corley sat down with Angela Eames prior to the opening of her 2018 exhibition ‘SCAPE’. Enjoy the interview!

MAPS – Fires Over Africa
In a time of collective concern for future human existence on planet Earth, I decided to present this series of images as conventional Tyvec-printed fold-up maps (where the portability and reassurance of a helpful guide might sneakily alert us to the serious implications of hitherto conventional agricultural practices) and as an edition of Fine Art Giclée prints on Hahnemuhle Baryta paper.
