about Eva's 3d work
In my recent solo exhibition “A Human Landscape”, I brought my 2d and 3d working practices together to create three large-scale installations that represented my notions on the concepts of identity, immigration and integration.

“A Human Landscape” portrayed a personal historic perspective of the consequences of deracination and the politically displaced migrant, and “A Liminal Drift”, addressed current European social and economic migrant issues.

The materials and processes I use in creating work are strongly linked to the concept of each artwork. For example, the “shoddy” felt used to form “A Human Landscape”, references the discarded lives of the women and children captured in the painted images. “Shoddy” is a material created from waste fabrics and recycled fibres sourced from around the world and processed in West Yorkshire local to where I live. Whereas the relationship between the map sections and chair legs in “A Liminal Drift” suggest the formation of new enforced borders and boundaries on the individual migrant’s culture, traditions and language in a foreign land.
