Unceasingly concerned with colours and their relationships, I explore what happens when two colours meet, how they dance side by side and what occurs at the borderline. Understanding colour is fundamental to my creative process, each hue sings and resonates with its neighbour, creating a rhythm within the composition. Drawing inspiration from the shallow planes of modernism, I build form through geometric shapes, clear facets and defined edges. This ravenous enquiry results in paintings that are exuberant, deeply expressive and delivered with potent emotion.
Eve is predominantly a figurative painter, working directly from life. She is preoccupied with the human form and both its presence and absence in space. Influenced by her lifelong studies of yogic teachings and spiritual thought she searches to crystallise on canvas the unselfconscious present state of being of the sitter; a sense of mortality clashes with a vivid embodiment.
Eve trained at the Heatherley School of Fine Art and The Royal Drawing School.
