Artist list

Eva Burton
Island number 4 presents a selection of works by Eva Burton made in the last three years.

Every series is influenced by the place she lived at that time and the feelings and experiences she went through. While living in Barcelona she focused on the assemblage technique, juxtaposing different materials and everyday objects that were lost or abandoned and transforming them in unexpected objects, whose beauty reminds us that fragmented stories are the ones that are worth reading. Once in Idar-Oberstein she mostly worked with stones and produced objects like tableware beside jewelry and started conceptualizing about the role of play and ritual in her practice. Some of the works of this period in fact refers to the Pre-Hispanic cultures. In this direction, once settled in Bilbao she started stressing the idea of the amulet by choosing the image of the bone as the formal element of hew newest collection.

Play, ritual, irony, pop culture. All these elements gather together in the work of Eva Burton and are the essentials aspects that give her pieces a special sense of lightness that is achieved through a wise use of color. Color is probably her strongest tool that allows us to understand her cognitive and imaginative ways of thinking. Everything she does is stitched with color. Through colors she reconciles with what she feels of this world.
