untitled 01

eva lister

'untitled 01' is an exploration of the intensity within human emotion, the relationship between material, texture, markings, colour, and feeling. the deepest blue of solitude, the blood red of rage.

within this journey, i come to understand the calm that resides even in the worst sensations, and how emptying them into a manifestation such as a mask, painting or photograph, is an act of peacefulness. 

with this, my full installation is intended to reflect that release - an aesthetically beautiful composition of grief, pain, and hurt.

my words, my emotions, my hurt, my humanity - are all my art, too.
