in addition to other honors. Eva resides in Ohio and is known for
her colorful, sensuous, provacative and organic forms.
Kwong speaks of her work in this exhibition:
Love Between the Atoms refers to the
attraction between the protons and the electrons in an atom. I see
the same attractive force which forms bonds at the subatomic level
working in the world we experience every day; it holds objects together
so we can build forms, and it draws people together so we can build
relationships. Mutual attraction draws us into connections with
each other and creates the interactions between the material world
and ourselves that are the focus of my work, on microcosmic as well
as macrocosmic levels.
I am interested in the juxtaposition
of mass/space, land/air, solid/hollow, male and female forms.
