eva lee emailed me yesterday about something unrelated to her own work, but once i saw it, i knew i had to post it. eva makes the most striking black and white illustrations that just blow me away. my favorite is posted above.
born and raised in good old nyc, eva currently lives and works in connecticut. she studied painting at bard, and earned her mfa at hunter college. during her time at hunter, eva was awarded the william graf travel grant to conduct research for her mfa thesis with scientists at the uc davis. her research there into methods of science and systems of knowledge culminated in a signature series of large-scale abstract drawings (which i love), made with white ink on black paper, consisting of numerous dots and lines that connect and evolve as the artist draws. these drawings have such a graphic elegance to them that i find myself wishing i was there to see them in person and experience the full effect of their size and their mastery of line. until then, you can see them online through eva's website. i hope you'll take the time to check them out.
