Artist Evilo’s paintings
are about movement and action, that instant a particular
exertion takes place. Each piece condenses the energy of
the scene through bright colors, vigorous brushstrokes,
and the movement of the subjects themselves. They are lively
chronicles of excitement, momentum and human interaction
seemingly ready to explode from the canvas with intensity.
The artist builds her compositions with several layers of
paint, sometimes creating a tactile surface of large, gestural
strokes. In Circus, her bright orange, hot pinks
and intense lilacs add to the gaiety and animation, exhilarating
its viewers with delighted emotions.
Evilo earned her Doctorate degree in Visual
Arts with a ‘Tres Honorable’ mention at the
Sorbonne University in Paris. Her busy exhibition schedule
includes Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, Strasbourg and Barcelone.
Her most recent solo exhibitions were at the Georgette Dupouy
Museum, DAX, in 2005 and in the famous French Jazz Festival
city of Marciac in 2006. She has an upcoming exhibit at
Pau and Arcachon.
