Helen Eager Colour and Light
24 March - 28 April 2012
Helen Eager’s oeuvre reveals a remarkable artistic journey – from a table, a chair, a sofa before an open window, to an equilateral triangle repeated in chains against white. In moving into and then beyond the image, Eager has reached a geometric simplicity that allows for endless variation and infinite complexity. The spaces Eager has continued to discover are the product of an artist who delights in her task – the simple act of putting pencil to paper, ink to stone or paint to canvas. Rather than rejecting representation or striving towards a purer form of art, Eager’s current abstraction has provided her with a new language through which sensation may be evoked. The viewer of her art is transported into a world where colour and light reign supreme.
