Eva Frengstad


Born in Norway, Eva has lived, worked, and studied in Norway, Poland, USA and Australia. She studied at the Academy of Art College in Sanfrancisco majoring in printmaking and fine arts. Eva has had three solo exhibitions in Norway and taken part in many group exhibitions in Norway, USA, Poland and Australia. Her work explores emotions, intuitions and her experience of different places she has travelled and in her mind visited. Eva builds paintings with layers, like stratified history, each canvas a different place discovered and uncovered. Her paintings map her journeys with words, language, colour and texture. The whole gamut of her experience is scratched, glued, stitched and painted. She bring these maps from one territory to the next and overlays one upon another to see what happens. this process situates her work in the moment of expression and yet sees each new work evolving from the last.
