Titled "Fuchsschwanz und Perenboom," this exhibition opens the new year and introduces audiences to a painter whose work has largely flown under the radar, despite her extensive exhibition history predominantly in the Netherlands.

Artistic Journey and Background

Eva studied graphic design with a focus on illustration in Krefeld and Düsseldorf before transitioning to the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam in 1998.

Over the past 25 years, Krause has showcased her work extensively across the Netherlands and made notable appearances in exhibitions in Madrid, Bologna, and Antwerp. Her education and experiences across Europe have deeply influenced her artistic style and thematic focus.

"Fuchsschwanz und Perenboom" Exhibition

The exhibition's name, "Fuchsschwanz und Perenboom" ("Fox Tail and Pear Tree"), itself evokes a sense of whimsy and intrigue, elements that are palpably reflected in Eva's work.

Krause’s ability to fuse realism with surrealism bridges a gap between these two distinct styles, offering viewers a visual feast that challenges their perceptions and invites deeper reflection.

"I sneak into a picture like a traveler into an unknown world. If I follow a path, a new path opens up, a new door; if I enter, there is no going back, but again a new path, a new door. The most wayward paths are my favorite on the journeys into the pictures, the unexpected paths the most exciting." Die Augenfalle - Eva Krause

Her paintings are a complex web of reality and imagination, a playground for the viewer’s eyes and mind, engaging them in a continuous dialogue with the artwork.

Eva Krause’s artwork is an intriguing blend of magic realism and modernity, where layered, semi-botanical forms seem to multiply from within themselves, suggesting a continuous, self-generating life cycle.

Her pieces reflect a unique interplay between nature and technology, hinting at a latent future that might explode into reality at any moment. This intersection creates a dynamic visual narrative that feels both timeless and intensely contemporary.
