In Shallow Seas, artist Robert Eadie presents over thirty canvases, including three

large triptych paintings, which fill the Gallery in Redchurch Street and take the

viewer on an abstract and imaginative journey through landscape. Inspired by

solitary wanderings through wilderness, these paintings are a distillation of memory

and emotion. Influenced by the scale and grandeur of contemporary abstract

painting, and by the soundscapes of Ambient music, Eadie has reduced both form

and colour to a minimum, and each painting is charged with accident, spontaneity

and emotional impact.

“In a world which has been irrevocably changed by the influence of human beings

I find it consoling and calming to imagine a natural landscape which is utterly

untouched by the human presence, for example one that may have existed in

geological time. I am interested in trying to make paintings that evoke this sense of

timeless and pristine beauty”

Robert Eadie trained at the Byam Shaw School of Art where he won the Bateson

Mason Award for Drawing, Heatherley’s School of Art and Brighton School of Art.

His last solo exhibition was held in 2010 at The Air Gallery in London. He lives

and works in West Sussex.
