Abject Gallery is pleased to announce Predicting Shadows, Elizabeth Eamer’s first solo exhibition in Newcastle, and the third show in the gallery. In this show London based artist Elizabeth Eamer details changes in colour and light over a series of twelve paintings, using oil on linen mounted on board. They can be viewed individually or as a whole, creating a gradient of colour. Taking into account the elevation of the gallery and its large windows, the intention is for the paintings to be viewed in the gradual changing of light and shadow throughout the day; particularly during the sunset, which is occurring at 9.05pm on the 14th of May 2016, which the opening has been happily arranged to coincide with.
(b. 1980 London UK, lives and works in London)
Eamer’s focus has developed from a figurative practice into more abstract notions of space together with a heightened interest in the complex nature of colour and order during the last couple of years, moving from a predominately drawing and print based practice to painting.
Eamer’s work has been shown nationally and internationally including at The Museum Of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Toronto Canada, in 2013, The Goss Michael Foundation, MTV-ReDefine, Dallas, Texas in 2011, and she has had solo shows in London, Southampton (UK) and Beijing (China). Eamer received an MA from the RCA London in 2006.
Opening in October 2015, Abject Gallery, run by Breeze Creatives is housed on the 8th floor of Bamburgh House, and is a new contemporary art gallery in Newcastle city centre. The program is focused on showing work from national and international contemporary artists. Based within the cities creative quarter the Abject Gallery sits alongside four of Newcastle's best contemporary galleries and artists spaces, collectively bringing a resurgence of the arts to the city.
