Rhyme and Reason
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.
