Work

Through her art practice, Eva presents visual fragments of personal stories relating to the migrant experience and traces of shared histories of displacement, immigration and integration.

She tells the story of her family's experiences related to the European post WW2 diaspora and her subsequent personal 'immigrant' experience as a second-generation British/Hungarian, born and brought up in England in the 1960s with 'foreign' parents.

In her work she invariably refers to the medium of memory, and uses personal and found objects that reference and allude to the life of the exile and migrant, reflecting on the existing parameters between theories of identity and belonging.

The process she uses in making her paintings is one of digitally altering found and family photographs, emphasizing the distortion of memory over time and space, and uses these newly created images to paint onto a variety of medium/surfaces, for example, family tablecloths; representative of 'home'.
