Oil on canvas
About the Artist
Eve Baker Wilbraham (b.2001, UK) is a contemporary visual artist whose work evokes a particular sense of place or recognition that merges into an ethereal atmosphere. Balancing mysticism with physicality, the paintings create tension between us and the subject matter. A feeling of fleeting moments in time, or delicate memories intertwine with elements distorted from reality. Working in oil, she builds up layers of paint to reflect an interest in the emotional layers that are held by the spaces we inhabit. A vivid emotive quality plays out on the surface. The work holds a sense of tranquility and intrigue as the eye is drawn through the different layers of paint. Eve sees the canvas as a permanent space for her to play with ideas of impermanence and memory and create a new space that is comforting yet also restless in its sensuous nature. Considering the images as an essence of a moment in time has helped her to develop and define her technique with paint and consider the journey the work takes from start to finish. Eve lives and works in Glasgow, UK.
