Eva Christin Laszka [b.1969], a fine art artist that uses photography as a medium on which she uses mixed media to create layers of depth and uniqueness to the work.
Laszka has a Norwegian mother and Hungarian father. She received a BA in Visual Communication and Illustration from the Art School of Iparmuveszeti Foiskola in Budapest [1988-1992]. She has strong ties to her Hungarian roots and finds a lot of inspiration for her works there. She works mostly in acrylics but also uses Ecoline and Oil painting, often using photographic images as the starting point. She weaves mystery and emotions into her paintings, and mixes abstract elements into the figurative. In 1994, she stumbled across a technique by accident, using a spirit based marker pen. The toxic marker was taken off the market, and she had to find another way to recreate her effect. She did, and this technique is now a well-guarded secret.
She has had major exhibitions through Gallery Ramfjord and /Barcode By Laszka/ She is represented in larger collections.
The exhibition is inspired by, and a collaboration with the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter-producer Thom Hell’s album //Happy Rabbit// from 2016. The music is said to be a homage to the artist who have inspired him and revel a warm, eerie glow of nostalgia and sense of innocence lost and retained. After meeting Hell, Laszka found inspiration and nostalgia in every song creating unique images for every track. The process for the body of work was created over 16 days inspired by the 16 tracks.
