About the Artist
Eva Magill-Oliver is an artist currently living in Georgia. She creates delicate, meditative, collages and drawings that reflect and explore different elements of the natural world. Presently, her work explores the theme of transition after having returned to the United States after spending several years in Paris, France. Her main subject matter is drawn from abstractions and patterns found in nature and organic environments. Eva feels a strong sense of connection between herself and her constantly evolving and transitioning natural surroundings.
Her mediums of choice are pencil, pen and ink, and cut paper on paper. The variance in materials adds a textural interest that she uses to mimic those found in the environment. The collage aspect also adds an element of controlled design as a fresh transformation emerges with every new layer. Her collaboration, a line of user-friendly pottery, with Asheville, NC. ceramicist, Laura Cooke, debuted at Mitchell Hill in April 2017.
