About EVA RECORDON

I am born in Germany, living in Germany and Southern France.
"Painting is my life and as far as I can remember, the use of paintbrushes and colors was always fascinating me."
I am preparing my international exhibitions while traveling between my art studio in Stuttgart to the south of France (Provence), where I am gathering new strength, inspired by the light and balance of untouched nature.
Through numerous exhibitions in France, Germany, Austria, Canada, The Netherlands and Switzerland, I could successfully present my work to a growing international audience
My philosophy: "Whatever you can do or what you are dreaming about. Courage has genius, Power and magic in itself." Goethe
My inspiration: every moment in life is accompanied by a feeling, and every feeling has its own image for me. Just as life writes my story, so do my pictures develop, expressing experiences and feelings in pictorial form. Experimentation and creative energy create works that touch or make you think.
In many artworks, the insertion of self-made collage parts from natural materials is in the foreground. The plant parts of reeds, palms, pine needles, lavender from my garden paradise in the south of France are the source of inspiration and material at the same time. The application of color layers, pigments, ocher sand, red soil and paper or plant collages creates three-dimensional spaces.
Artistic approach: Spontaneity, joy of experimentation and dynamism determine the painting process and the paintings that are always created in abstract pictorial form and in mixed techniques. I am approaching my works emotionally, following my current feelings and impulses, which brings the painting close to the informal, without obedient rules of composition, in which color surfaces and lines provide a visual rhythm.
The spatula is used as an indispensable main design tool of the artist. The paint application is characterized by the tool and color coatings, densifications occur plastically.


Education

I studied languages and business administration and initially worked in the seventies for several years in international sales in France. Back to Germany I was working for an international agency in the Haute Couture area, as well as for an American textile designer, author and collector of contemporary craftsmanship.
As I am fascinated by painting and other artistic activities from a very young age, I took part in different courses and workshops with renowned artists and thus gaining valuable knowledge in different techniques.
In the ninetees, I continued my artistic education at the Kolping Art School Stuttgart, where I learned to know more versatile and interesting techniques. In 2010 I completed further studies at the Art Academy Bad Reichenhall. The painting in mixed media, experimenting with different materials, in an abstract, experimental and expressionist style, fascinate and inspire me up to now. Since then I am working as a freelance fulltime artist.
