The recent work by Irish artist Eamon Coleman is presented at Webster University’s Cecille R. Hunt Gallery. Colman’s paintings explore the interdependency of nature and nurture in landscape painting. Using striking luminescent colors, each of which compiles landscapes of organic forms and delicate painterly strokes, Colman speaks in a personalized visual language. Each painting tells of a specific physical journey or exploration of both familiar and exotic landscapes —Africa, Ireland and the United States—yet each painting is ambiguous enough to allow the imagination to wander. As a devoted colorist, he also explores the painting’s “otherness” through defining a sense of place, both personally and historically through a layering of symbolic gestures. His work presents a flattening ‘topography’ of symbols, but also a multi-layered cartography of paint. The work then acts as a way of articulating his personal relationship to his chosen subject. Coleman lives and works in Kilkenny, Ireland.
Financial assistance for this project has been provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency And with support from the Regional Arts Commission
