Angela Eames is an artist/drawer who has been working within drawing/computing space since 1987 and has exhibited work (from drawings in graphite on paper, through large format digital imaging, through to video works) in this country and abroad. She uses line and in particular the accumulation of hand drawn or computer generated line - forged through pencil, pixel, polygon, vertex and spline.

"Eames takes raw data from her ongoing drawings/photographs, the web and planetary science archives and processes it, creating new scapes. She builds, composites and optimises her images, to produce unfamiliar images or landscapes - images foreign to everyday human experience. Her work is best defined by its intense but delicate craftsmanship and by the transformation of commonplace image/object into works of art. Eames contradicts the generic and mass-produced with something essentially handmade, imbuing her images with an unanticipated sense of place; here and/or there, now and/or then, in front of and/or behind. Her work generates a dialogue between modernity and history, observation and fabrication, nature and urbanity and the relationship between process and idea.” (Alejandro Ball - Curator of Art-Gene, Digital U - Extreme Views.)

Angela Eames attended Johannesburg School of Art in South Africa where she undertook her first Foundation course in Art and Design. On completion she returned to England to attend Farnham School of Art on a second Foundation course. From 1971 thro’ to 1974 she studied Fine Art Painting at Bath Academy of Art in Corsham gaining a place to study Fine Art/Experimental place at the Slade School, London in 1974. Her work as both artist and teacher instigated a return to study in 1991 to complete a Masters in Computing in Art and Design at Middlesex University under the tutelage of John Lansdowne. As an artist whose practice has continuously involved the exploration of drawing in direct relation to technology, she received a Doctorate in Drawing at Wimbledon School of Art and the University of Surrey in 2000.
