Eva Olofsson
Biography

Eva Olofsson is a Swedish artist with a solid education in art, design and interiors.
Born in 1977 and based in Gothenburg.
Eva's paintings often offer the small beautiful details that our universe conveys every day but that can be difficult to detect at first glance. The dramatic nature filled with life is her source of inspiration, and this is where Eva finds the components that bring her creative mind to a unique encounter with the brush.
Eva's paintings are characterized by a peculiar expression that emanates from the special mixed technique she uses.
In Eva's work, you can always find new details which have been developed by textures built on layers. The colors flow and create a melody through the entire painting. 
As the creative soul that she is, Eva always paints on intuition to the last brush stroke and there is never a clear conception of how the work should look like, this provides the viewer of her works with a magical journey through a world full of moments. 
A vocation and comprehensive professional experience as a master florist, allow Eva to work naturally with plants and flowers in an intuitive way. These are ingredients that Eva skillfully balances in a harmonious interplay of life's big events and small details.
The journey of life and its stories are topics that Eva often depicts when she creates. In everyday life we find Eva in her studio in Torslanda, Gothenburg, where she works full time. Her paintings can be viewed on exhibitions at several galleries throughout Sweden and in Denmark.
 

Artist Statement
In my art, I wish to portray the nature and the meetings we humans collect during the journey of life. The creative process enriches me and allows me to open my inner mind to interpret the surroundings.
I find inspiration in everything from old books to maps, animals and people, and the details of life. 
I want to convey a harmonious tour of life and an insight into the moments that we do not always see. What is happening in our world and its sentiments place a different imprint in my paintings.
I work on intuition through color and shape that comes naturally during my working process. I wish to channel my thinking to the viewer and my aim is to trigger the curiosity to wander through my paintings several times and constantly discovering new details again and again.
The whole offers a variety of components that can be discovered step by step and you can never see at a first glance. I work in many layers of acrylic, oil, screen printing, collage and drawing. Painting means joy of life for me and I wish that my art will transmit recovery and peacefulness for other people.

”There is a extraordinary stimulation in these bold impacts in an
environment, where so many secrets are hiding during seasonal veils.
Amongst countless natural portrayer in the art world she takes a special
status by her peculiar imaging.”
