Eva uses painting's inherent language as a platform to create landscapes. These represent the most essential qualities from places she has visited.
Without being exact depictions, her paintings contain the aura of specific spaces. A representation of landscapes within a landscape, which is far closer to the reality of memory.
In the studio she is concerned with the physicality of making work and playful experimentation, continually fascinated by new possibilities of making marks and by the vast space they appear to occupy. The potential resemblance of marks to natural qualities and events is central to her thoughts. The specificity of these intense moments of observation and clarity anchors the viewer, freeing them into a more universal encounter.
Eva’s decisions are determined by contrasts in scale, appearance and mood. The resulting images appear as illusionistic spaces that are interrupted by the mark of the physical gesture. She is interested in the comparison between the meditative space provided by these elements and that of being surrounded by nature itself.
