Nothing lasts forever 2008 John Buckley Gallery
Gathering together some of the key signifiers of our info-centric society – strings of binary code, grids, matrices and pixels – each work is a painterly representation of the visual static that permeates contemporary culture. Pitching the rational against the intuitive and revealing a complex interplay between them, [Eaton’s work] highlights how awkwardly and precariously meaning is ascribed to the man-made sign systems that mediate our day–to-day experiences of the world.
