Eva Isaken’s Collages Are Inspired By Nature

Eva Isaksens Collages Nature

Eva Isaken’s collages and paintings are a visual representation of the changing seasons, of nature at it’s most pure, its most beautiful. Isaken work somehow illuminates that which we see everyday, elevates organic forms and natural patterns into compositions that sing, that are a paean to the natural world.

To make these collages Isaken begins with thin paper onto which she prints, draws, cuts up and mixes layers of delicate images through which she explores colour, line, material, space and form. Here’s what she says about her work:

My work has always been inspired by nature: organic forms, cycles, seasons, land, water, sky, order, rhythm, repetition, growth, life, regeneration. For some time now, I have been using papers as the primary material in my work. The thin papers, which I print on, draw on, cut up, mix, are layered endlessly on the canvas. No “found” papers are used. I print them all, using yarns, fabric, seeds, pressed plants and other organic material.

My work is an exploration of complex colour schemes and contrasts. I seek ways to bring my work to new levels of my personal interpretation of nature. My work is about colour, line, material, form, space and about art as a process that always changes and grows. Where to stop? How far to push? How little? How much? Colour is intense. It overpowers me. After working with it for weeks on end, I step back, peel the colour away. What is underneath? Something new. Somewhere to grow from again
