REVIEW BY MARK COCKER
Author & Environmentalist


Anthea Eames' evocative, richly textured paintings are rooted in the landscapes around her Norfolk home, the Cornish coastline and parts of Africa and Australia. Feeling a strong connection to place, she collects earth pigments combining these with paint, subtly revealing past histories. House&Garden 2017

ARTIST STATEMENT
In my mixed media works I explore surface, texture, colour, shape, composition and markmaking, forming abstracted images through which I try to convey my experiences of being in the landscape. After sketching on site, these images are created from memory, of places which are of special significance to me.

Although mainly based in Norfolk, my life and work continues to take me to parts of the African and Australian continents while my particular interest in the formation of landscape also leads me to locations which are rich in history, geology and myth. I am not interested in recording exactly what is in front of me but in somehow revealing the hidden truth lying beneath the surface - the effects of time, the elements and human activity upon the land.

My pigments are sourced from the location itself, ground and mixed with acrylic resins to achieve a variety of finishes. Layers are built up and scraped away almost like an archaeological process of excavation.
