Eoin Francis McCormack Artist Bio:
I have grown accustomed to imposing certain limits and structures when I paint. These processes have evolved over the years and molded to form and fit my practice: I paint triptychs, mix my own paint, fabricate my own tools and use a limited palette of colors. These are my choices, they constitute my paintings. The work of the painter and the world of the artist’s studio often seem to exist in contradiction to accepted concepts of ‘working’ in our contemporary culture. To choose to be a maker of something, without a clearly defined purpose, in our society is something artists must constantly deal with in their work. Acutely aware of this as a painter, I explore these contradictions through the working methods I implement, stressing the routine and physical labor aspects of working as an artist. I have constructed a practice that explores painting as a work ethic, whilst also examining what a painting might mean to a viewer, and whether or not the things I make in the confines of my studio might have an impact on those who view them. I am interested in the time spent by the viewer, in front of the canvas; I wonder what they think, and if they consider their time spent as worthwhile.
