PAINTING

Eva paints a world in which characters contemplate, lay down lurking sometimes even mixed with animalistic body parts. Like modern occult goddesses.

Radiating a dance between nature and female sensuality, colourful depictions of ancient seeming rituals or creatures bound together in natural forms. Bringing together her love for travel and her fascination for strong female, sensual characters, exploring the boundaries of the abstract and the figuartive.
