Predicting Shadows


Press Release
Abject Gallery –  Elizabeth Eamer – Predicting Shadows
Private View: Saturday the 14th of May from 7- 11pm,
DJ Set by Derek Mainella as the sun goes down.
May 15th to June 11th, 
12-5pm Wednesday - Saturday. 
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. 

Elizabeth Eamer
(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.

Flyer for show

Here is a flyer for my new show entitled "Normcore '90's throwback John Major a spectrum of Grey"

Monday, 12 May 2014


Need You 100% is a group show curated by point zero at Display Gallery in Holborn Viaduct which is on until the 2nd June. I am exhibiting some of my latest paintings here, the Gallery is open Mon-Friday from 12-6pm. There is also a LATE NIGHT OPENING on Thursday 15th for anyone who missed the private view.

Need You 100% brings together a selection of contemporary artists working in London and internationally, in a range of formats. The title of the exhibition, culled from a search result, does serve to illustrate artists interdependency on YouTube, Google, digital platforms and new media outputs. 

On the other hand, this phenomenon has also influenced some artists back into the traditional world of materials and process. Working paradoxically at times, with new-fashioned methods and a growing reverence of historical modernist work via the web. Whether they are post-internet practitioners or not, we can see in the work of this group a new generation of convenience, where references are transmitted and gathered very quickly and thus become either a key factor, or a non-issue. 

With works that exhibit a varietal approach to materials, and anything from a pronounced simplicity to a multiplicity of obscure implications, Need You 100% offers a direct glimmer into the art of today.

Opening reception: Friday, February 1, 8 – 10 pm 

Artist talks: Saturday, February 2, 1 pm

This group exhibition of new British art diversely posits a schism between the Modern and Contemporary through the spectacle of redevelopment, urban shrines, sexuality and celebrity culture. With allusions to the grotesquely beautiful and exploring the darker side of kitsch, Are You Alright? reveals a trend of disillusionment with contemporary British society.

Monday, 17 December 2012

I am pleased to announce: ARE YOU ALRIGHT? New Art From Britain, curated by Derek Mainella and Elizabeth Eamer will open at THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY CANADIAN ART (MOCCA) Toronto, February 1st- March 24, 2013.

A list of Artist is to follow later this week!
