Hillsboro Fine art | Dublin |
2015

Walking at Three Miles Per Hour is the title of a new series of paintings by Eamon Colman at Hillsboro Fine Art, Dublin. The new work for this exhibition was inspired by the act of walking and the average speed of a person undertaking a long walk. The narrative the artist evokes is closely bound up with the act of walking; life viewed as a journey.

Between grey rain and snow

There is no season for margins

Hillsboro Fine Art | Dublin |
2012

Colman is a walker, adopting the approach of the anthropologist and ethnographer in his quest for being at one, bringing himself into relation with nature. He gives voice to an encounter, portraying subjects such as snoring owls, apple trees, snow, rain, memory and time and to that which bares the trace of human significance, as an imprint of a culture through his use of paint and colour. The paintings in this exhibition in oil on linen are built up and out from the regularity of the straight edge, without a frame referencing the said finitude. The human condition may attempt to adjust nature at the edges with boundaries, ploughed fields and plantations, but our reaction to nature if directed acknowledges that nature is uncontained, without an external frame, reaching infinity.

Monument 3

Monument

Stern Studio | Vienna, Austria |
2011

Adopting an ethnographic approach this series of 24 paintings, on un-stretched linen, conflate forgotten histories with a contemporary sense of belonging. These visualise an experienced and fictional landscape; the particularity of the locale is embedded in cultural beliefs and thus reflected in this series. Monument is a characterisation of something physical, a shrine that is fluid, a space and subjective place for navigating potentiality of the local narratives of identity, history, politics and economy together emphasising a unique and particular position.

What is real or actual? Everything and nothing

Oriel Queen's Hall Gallery | Wales |

From his ongoing research Colman has turned his philosophies to the subject of landscape, in particular – the question that surround the depictions of landscape. Questions about mood, does the mood of the artist effect how the landscape is addressed? Does the landscape have a mood?

Before the dark gets stronger than the light

Rua Red, South Dublin Arts Centre | Dublin |
November 2010

Before the dark gets stronger than the light is a new body of paintings by Eamon Colman. Rendered in acrylic and oil paint on Somerset 410 gram paper these large-scale paintings depict abstracted, experienced landscapes.

Influenced by the writings of German Philosopher Immanuel Kant, Colman explores the question that surround the “depictions of landscape”- the real or the actual.  Questions about mood, does the mood of the artist affect how the landscape is addressed? Does the landscape have a mood? Deemed as “unmistakably a colourist” by Aidan Dunne, for Colman the introduction of colour as an indicator of mood allows the viewer to interpret this for themselves.  The artist is not the end controller but part of the visual debate.
