Eva Berendes

Often a mixture of high art, design and basic craftsmanship, Eva Berendes’ works create meaning that reaches far beyond the works ostensibly modernist aesthetic.

Berendes’ works are often influenced by sources as diverse as Russian Suprematist painting, Bauhaus, Amish quilt-makers, the Arts and Crafts Movement, Hollywood sets and 1980s Memphis furniture. Employing the formal vocabularies of these varied sources, Berendes produces works that combine and conflate these histories, alluding not only to their rigorous aesthetics, but also to the political and cultural climates from which they arose.
