Eva Varga has a degree in Visual Arts from the University of South Australia majoring in Sculpture. She started painting in 2006 and turned professional in October 2007 working from her studio in East Victoria Park.
Much of Eva's 2D work is textural, evoking a feeling of movement, depth and controlled abandonment. Her style is unique and ever changing, reflecting her mood at the time of creating. When you invest in her works you are not only buying a work of art you are buying a piece of the artist herself.
Eva's works hang in private and corporate collections.
My formal training is in sculpture and that is reflected in many of my 2D works, as so many are textural. I want the viewer to feel as if they have to touch them to get the full experience of the work.
Colour too is very important to me, be they subtle or bold, and I enjoy creating works that are harmonious while still having a sense of drama about them. An aspect all my works have in common is they come from what I can only describe as my soul.
There are many influences on my work including the greats like Monet and Van Gough as well as more modern painters such as Jasper Johns, Mark Rothko and our own Howard Taylor.
My inspiration comes from other artists, dreams, photographs, nature and just the natural urge to place paint on canvas.
Experimentation too is important to me, finding techniques from other disciplines that I can tailor to my practice is exciting and opens up a new realm away from typical and traditional painting methods. I am drawn to painting on larger canvases as it provides a freedom of expression for me that smaller surfaces, at this stage in my career don't.
Due to my experimentation, much of my work uses multi media with a bias for acrylics. Acrylics, due to their fast drying time allow me to paint from my gut rather than my head, allowing me to find my zone and "get lost" in the process.
