Artist Statement 

Eamer’s painting/s is/are part of a new body of work, using oil, on various different types of Linen and Canvas; sometimes backed with board. She came into painting relatively recently through a background of drawing and printmaking. Having reached a point in her drawing practice where colour had become more of a consideration than line, she started to paint. Having previously drawn faces and hands and their interactions, her practice has become more abstracted. She has began to investigate colour.

Eamer has always used categorization, and the compartmentalization of emotion. This has progressed this into the organization colour. She has always used the language of information graphics and the misinterpretation and manipulation of the graph. The intention behind the work; and what she achieves is to use the visually familiar graph in all its forms and confuse it into abstraction.
