Eva Isaksen: Far North

Foster/White Gallery, Seattle, WA - Jun 6 – 22

by Michael Turner

Norwegian-born, Seattle-based Eva Isaksen is known for working in various media, including collage, acrylic inks, graphite and monotypes. Her more recent forays extend the collagist tendency to a warmer, abstracted graphic style, highlighted by saturated colors and vintage clippings from Norwegian publications and texts. At times these works, like Somewhere Around the Bend (2024), evoke the modern grid, though it is never clear whether its appearance is a flirtation or a flight from it.
