"Eva M. Paar, Icons"
2008-10-29 until 2008-11-23
Parkdale Gallery presents "Eva M. Paar, Icons" from October 29th to November 23rd 2008. Eva Paar is an award winning Austrian Artist who exhibits worldwide. Born in Salzburg, Eva works and lives in Linz. Since the breakout of her illness, multiple sclerosis, in 2001, she has put all her energy into creating oil paintings and analog photographic artwork. Even though she often exhibits in other countries and continents, her strong attachment to Salzburg remains. Her unique style plays upon parallel and differentiated broad lines to represent humans, abstracted figures and scenes. Using warm earth colours provides a contrast to coolly selected motifs.
Close together color gradations let more exact outlines as well as shade develop, in a realistic effect. The second half of the 20th century is the theme of her present work. Icons of the sixties, and innocent models of the present, including social topics, are reflected in dynamic poses and scenes.
This will be Eva's first Canadian exhibition. After which she will showing her works in New York and Germany. Don't miss this opportunity to see her works in Ottawa.
Parkdale Gallery celebrates the diversity of artistic visions. Featured artists and sculptors, established or newly emerging talents, from near and far, are represented.
