Eva De Leener

Eva De Leener - Burning mountains


Eva De Leener (1978) has an oeuvre that comprises drawings, paintings, triptychs, sculptures, prose and poems. She searches various religions and cultures for stories, myths, sagas and symbols which she combines with autobiographical elements to make up a personal iconography. In her work, several storylines fuse into a colourful and slightly sinister world whose main focus is the human figure in various guises. The most conspicuous motifs are archetypes, the eye, the black hole, the cross, hands, ponds, fire and animals. Approached in this way, the work can be interpreted as containing a history long past, thus appealing to the viewer’s memory, wonder and imagination.
