This week’s Work of the Week is the appropriately named Heat by Eva Fuller, as it’s been a hot hot week in Alberta with heat warnings in place for large swaths of the province.
About the Artist: Eva Heller (from the artist’s website)
Back in Poland, Eva Heller received extensive formal education in fine arts first, through a five-year Fine Arts High School, and then six years in an Academy of Fine Arts. She graduated with Masters of Fine Arts with diplomas in both painting and artistic weaving. The variety of her artworks predominantly represent the artist’s deep concern about Nature and her strong interest in animals.
Heller has worked with many different painting techniques, painting on paper, board and canvas with ink, pastels and acrylics. Initially, she was committed to artistic weaving, but then switched to painting and drawing. In recent years, Heller has almost exclusively painted in acrylics.
Her art has been shown in a number of galleries and can be found in both public and private collections in Canada and abroad.
In October 2017, Heller moved from Alberta to Hope, BC, where she now lives and works in her studio in the Lake Kawkawa area.
