Éamon McGivern is a figurative painter based in San Francisco California. In 2015 while living in London, they noticed that people were continuously talking about gender in incoherent ways. Seven years later they are returning to London with a new name and sex marker on their ID, intent on researching why and how the English language is so bad at articulating gender.
Éamon is interested in the way English has been used as a tool of settler colonial oppression and gender violence for over 500 years and how that continues to shape how we understand ourselves. They hope to spend a lot of time in the library reading and also interviewing people living in the UK about their relationship to gendered language. When at home in San Francisco they spend their time making figurative oil paintings.
