“These Mini Originals are part of my art research on the interactions between different mediums. Inspired by the technique surrealists used back in the mid 1930’s called Decalcomania, I experimented mainly with Prussian Blue watercolour paint and Black Indian Ink using different transferring techniques. Abstract apocalyptic sceneries emerged through this process as a reflection of the times we live in. Although as an artist I keep trying to catch glimpses of beauty and hope everywhere around me.” (Eva Merendes, 2020)

ARTIST BIO
EVA MERENDES

Eva Merendes is a Greek self-taught mixed-media artist who moved to London in 2016 to pursue her artistic aspirations. Since then, she has been featured in numerous group exhibitions and festivals. Influenced by her studies in Psychology, Eva offers an unconventional perspective where art becomes a tool for scientific study of the mind and behaviours to unveil what lies beneath the surface. For Eva, every drawing starts with the geometric shape of a circle. Having grown up on a farm, Eva traces back her interest for round shapes to the observation of nature’s biological cells through the magnifying glass of her father’s microscope. A strong curiosity is the driving force behind Eva’s practice leading to fearless experimentations with different materials and media as she takes us on a journey of complete immersion in her world of colourful circles.

“The Earth. A cell. A group of people sitting around a table to share a meal or gathering around a fire. A circle brings life – everything comes from a circle.”

Feeding through her entire creation process, Eva finds inspiration in the curves of the female body. Delving deeper into the concept of femininity and its societal depictions, she puts forward her own interpretation of what it means to be a woman. But Eva doesn’t stop there. Her strong desire to learn about the world around her inevitably leads her to question socially constructed identities and roles. Humanist at heart, her passion for deconstructing human relationships gives her the drive to push the limits of her own experimentations. Closing her own circles, Eva finds in art a way to connect with the present moment, the here and now. But when the unconscious meets consciousness, her inquisitive mind brings out her own anxieties and fears to the forefront pulling her into a spiral of her own making. Life, for Eva, isn’t a straight line – it is a constantly moving open-ended circle. Strong in her own vulnerability, she draws her way out of the spiral and into the process of self-acceptance to shape her own unconventional path, from one curious exploration to the next.
