Eva Kunze Artist Bio:
Eva Kunze is an German artist currently living and working near Munich, Bavaria, Germany. In 1982 she graduated with a Diploma of the Munich Academy of Applied Graphics. Eva has won several prizes and awards - in 2012 she won the Nymphenburger Art Prize of the Erwin von Kreibig Foundation. Her work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and international art fairs, and is in many private collections throughout Europe. Since she started painting in 1983, Evas work has gone through different stages. From 1988 - 2004 she was working on the series "EVOLUTION OF FORMS", which consists of 70 abstract paintings - oil on canvas, in different sizes. This series is inspired by nature and impressionist painters such as Claude Monet. From 2007 - until 2015, she is working on her series "VEILED - UNVEILED", which consists figurative paintings and brand new photographs manipulated using mixed media. From 2015 - until now, she is working on a new series "IDENTITY", in which she goes on developing her very own technique, a special combination of photography, panting and computer art. About the series "VEILED - UNVEILED": The central theme in my current work series "VEILED - UNVEILED" is the personal, individual and bodily state of exposure. The typical models, when photographed, carry with them surprise and vulnerability at the same time. Through their veiling I want to protect their integrity. The question is: what and how do I veil and reveal. Through camouflage and delusion I show their existence as individuals in an increasingly depersonalised environment. In this vein I use as artistic medium the shrouding of the photo with paint and brush. The pictures are objects in a mimetic sense. They are representations of desires and choices to be. The body acts as a kind of cover and space for retreat. Every single woman becomes the frontispiece of her own experience. The appearance of these women still eludes their corporeality, sometimes by the vagueness, sometimes by their morbid dynamics, but above all the charisma of these creatures exceeds their physical context. They dissolve, stride towards us, flowing veils of color in there. I want to leave the stories behind their characters in abeyance. You can only suspect what lies behind the veil. I can best define a feeling, or an idea through a female figure, simply because I am a woman, too.
