Eva M. Paar

Born 1977 in and grown up in Salzburg (Austria), Eva M. Paar works and lives in Linz (AT). A great city of new culture, inspiration and creativity. Since the breakout of her illness on multiple sclerosis in 2000/2001, she creates oil paintings and analog photographic artwork in her own, unique style.


Please take a moment to dive into my world of thoughts.

The emptiness of a canvas is like a good friend to me, waiting for me to tell it a story. With every brushstroke, every layer of paint, I take you on a journey where the canvas becomes my confidant.

The creation of my artworks is both a physical and mental challenge. Each act requires strength and concentration, while at the same time, my soul pours into the work. My motivation is driven by international role models who have paved the paths in art before me.

Behind many of my works, there's a historical background, a connection to the past that I revitalize in a modern way. Old themes find themselves in my contemporary exploration, giving rise to the RELAXED FORMATION that allows the viewer to tread new paths.

Earthy tones form the foundation of my being. They reflect my emotions, my experiences, and my essence. Yet, not everything is immediately visible. Some aspects of my photographs and oil paintings remain behind a curtain, and only through intense observation is the true essence revealed.

Through an illness, the thirst for more art was awakened within me. Themes like celebrities and Hollywood might seem superficial, but my art goes deeper. It engages with current events and historical occurrences. When viewed voyeuristically, the painting might appear insignificant at first, while gaining its full significance from a distance.

My art is experimental, a play of lines and shapes that defines the RELAXED FORMATION for me. I believe art gives each work a substantial character, a depth that goes beyond the obvious. And when you look at my exhibits, you not only see the past but also catch a glimpse of the future. Because art is timeless, bridging generations and telling stories that haven't been written yet.

Artist Statement - "Relaxed Formation"


She represents humans or abstracted figures by a play of parallel and differently broad lines. Eva M. Paar primary uses earth-colors, in order to give a warm and pleasant character to the oil paintings, which stands in contrast to the often coolly selected motives. Represented humans and scenes do not only dissolve by differently broad lines, but close together lying color gradations support the realistic effect from the distance. They let more exact outlines as well as shade develop.

The second half of the 20th century is located in the center of her present work. By icons of the sixties, and a juvenile manner innocent models of the present, up to socio topics, reflect in her dynamic poses and scenes.

Artist Statement - "Analog B&W Photography"

In contrast to the "Relaxed Formation" the second activity of the artist is the black and white 35mm photography. Realistic objects such as trees are displayed very unreal. Due to the multiple exposure of the film on the one hand the motives develop a very mysterious and alien existence. While on the other hand this effect is reinforced by the transformation into the "digital world". Because of the digitization idiosyncratic colors come to light and make the "spirit" of the object visible to the watcher. In other places Eva M. Paar amplifies this effect by minimal digital processing.
