Eva Larsson received her BFE from Konstfack University of Arts and Design in 1988. Since then her life has revolved around art. She is based in Stockholm.
Larsson´s sculptural art are coveted for her striking intimacy and rarity. Installations are put together to form ambiguous scenes to create a reflective surface, a room for reflection, in which the viewer’s thoughts and memories are activated. An emphasis on exploratory creative practice has brought her where she is today with a plethora of international exhibitions and public art commissions. Her sculptural works can be found in public and private collections globally.
In my work I construct different scenes with pictures and sculptures. This is a way for me to examine nuances of human interaction and phenomena in our turmoil and fast changing society. Most of my work revolves around themes of conformity, standards and social hierarchies versus liberation and courage. Through the process new questions arise that develop my work into new fields of thoughts. The ambition with my work is to create ambiguous scenes and a room for reflection, in which the viewer’s thoughts and memories are activated.
My work consists mainly of sculptural work in different materials. Materials like bronze, often with a patina, to stone and ceramics is often used. The raku-fired clay with it´s challenges fascinates me. The surface of the sculptures changes and varies with every new work and the firing gives nature a part in the process. Bronze and stone is more suitable when it comes to durability. The experiments with patina on bronze are a new dimension with a lot of possibilities.
