Year of Residency: 2009

The Trust was pleased to welcome Eve Armstrong to French Bay for autumn 2009.

Eve, who was recognised by the Arts Foundation as a New Generation artist in 2006, is an artist who doesn't see the sense in using new materials in her work. Instead she integrates found objects and ideas into her making.  Like Richard Lewer, Eve showed her work in the studio itself at the end of her residency which gave a rare opportunity for visitors to come and see both the restored house and the residency, along with some amazing art.

Artist statement

'I found that my McCahon House Residency became a time when ideas that had been percolating for several years were finally translated into work. I believe the space, time and support afforded by the residency, allowed me to do this.'
