Forty paintings by Eva Flatscher, presented in a newly published catalog, were drafted during live performances, but finished in a meticulous process of refinement and detailed elaboration at her studio in Princeton, New Jersey, USA. The fortpieces of art that are presented have a history and stand or themselves in their own right.
Eva Flatscher is a Viennese painter and performer working in an avantgarde combination of painting, dance and music known as Light Painting. She performs frequently with outstanding musicans from differing backgrounds - classical, jazz, new music - and with renowned dancers throughout Europe and the USA. It is transcending art Eva Flatscher creates. It transcends traditional boundaries between art forms and expands ho
zons. Uniquely for a fine artist, she paints live in front of an audience. She creates in the moment for the momen
without using any preproduced material. She uses light instead of paint, a grip pen instead of a brush. It is a digital performance, that has its roots with the Dutch masters of the 17th century. Johannes Vermeer knew, that with the first stroke of the brush a painting is ready and readable in its entirety. Without this technique live painting in front of an audience would be impossible.
Eva Flatscher transforms our understanding of fine art and takes it to an entirely new level.
