Eve Leader

South Main Gallery, Vancouver, BC - Sep 8-Oct 1

by Robin Laurence

Vancouver artist Eve Leader creates evocative oil paintings on Mylar, combining figuration and abstraction to muse on the human condition, the mystery of life and the elusive nature of reality. “I try to capture that moment of bewilderment when structure and order in our existence break down, everything looks unfamiliar, and we are sure of nothing,” she writes in her statement. Her hovering, androgynous figures suggest loss, fragility and mortality, but also compassion and the redemptive power of love.
