Eva Wagner

Exhi­bi­tion from 21.04.2021 — 29.05.2021


While Eva Wag­n­er used to use fleet­ing moments of every­day life in urban envi­ron­ments as a source of inspi­ra­tion for her mul­ti-lay­ered pic­ture com­po­si­tions, now veg­etable struc­tures have become the dom­i­nant theme of her painter­ly research.

Eva Wagner’s pic­tures have a long process of cre­ation. Lay­er by lay­er with glaze applied paint, she com­bines abstract and fig­u­ra­tive parts in her pic­tures and there­by evokes the impres­sion of infi­nite depth and a suc­tion effect. This super­im­po­si­tion of dif­fer­ent image lev­els cre­ates an aura of the fleet­ing, inde­ter­mi­nate, but also of the mys­te­ri­ous, ephemer­al. Real­i­ty is present, but nev­er real­ly tan­gi­ble and man­i­fest. The abstract col­or spaces that open up between the real­is­tic flo­ral quotes always leave enough room for your own asso­ci­a­tions and inter­pre­ta­tions of the recipient.
