ABSTRACTS – Eunmi Conacher
April 1 – 30, 2016
DALES GALLERY is proud to exhibit ABSTRACTS by Eunmi Conacher April 1-30
My paintings bring the energy, represented by urban landscapes, to the canvas. I attempt to capture life in urban environments, as seen through my eyes. My work is more an expression of the mood in the scene, rather than a realistic picture of the scene. I use depth of colour to balance realism and abstract.
EUNMI CONACHER, BFA, AFCA, SCA
She is a Nanaimo artist who works primarily with oils and acrylics. She attended Hong-Ik University in Seoul, Korea, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, majoring in ceramics. She also has a teaching certificate. She attended post graduate courses in ceramics at The University of Sydney, Australia; and did a research program in ceramics at Tsukuba University, Japan.
She moved to Nanaimo in 2004, where she renewed her interest in painting, inspired by the natural beauty of Vancouver Island. She became an active member of The Federation of Canadian Artists in 2008, and an associate member in 2015. She became an elected member of The Society of Canadian Artists in 2013. She has been painting fulltime and has had solo and group exhibitions, and has won awards. Her paintings are sold internationally.
In her painting, she attempts to capture life in many environments as seen through her eyes. Her work is more an expression of the mood in the scene rather than a realistic picture of the scene. She uses depth of colour to balance realism and abstract. The result she strives for is a painting from the heart
