Eva Isaksen works in a variety of media, most frequently collage, acrylic inks, graphite, and monotypes. Recent explorations have pushed the collage style she is most known for into a more graphic, abstracted realm, using a range of soft neutrals and warm blacks, as well as controlled hits of highly saturated colors. She has also recently used source materials from her native Norway - vintage clippings from publications and texts. Everything Isaksen does is woven with her recognizable sensibility, while she continues to explore new realities within her work.
Iskasen studied at the Nordland School of Arts & Crafts Narvik, Norway, and holds a BFA from the University of South Dakota, Vermillion, SD, as well as an MFA from Montana State University, Bozeman, MT. She has shown her work across the world including at Galleri G. Guddal, Rosendal, Norway, Whatcom Museum, Bellingham, WA, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, WA, and Museo de los Pintores Oaxaquenos, Oaxaca, Mexico. Isaksen has participated in artist residencies across the world as well, most recently at Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Bally, Ireland. Her work is part of dozens of private, public, and corporate collections internationally including those of the Boeing Corporate Headquarters, Chicago, IL, Goldman Sachs, New York, NY, and the United States Embassy in Riga, Latvia.
