Éabha Lambe’s abstract style focuses on ethereal light and shadows found on walls of domestic spaces. Exploring her place as an artist of dual British and Irish heritage, as she conveys the ignored history of Irish Laundries. The traditional interest in light began from looking at the everyday and mundane, within art and culture, specifically non-places. She is experimenting with painting distortions that printing physical copies of digital images can have on the qualities and ideas and therefore develop into an alternative focus in the paintings. Painting an intangible form of light and shadows on a surface, allows for an understanding of colour within an image as it changes dependent on the light.
