Eva Beresin

EVA BERESIN is a Hungarian artist based in Austria. Beresin views her work as a constant attempt to translate the images in her head into something visible as quickly as possible so that the pictures are never finished but rather remain in a continuous process. To Beresin, her technique of overpainting “invisible figures” (people either in motion or standing in front of each other in an eclipsed fashion) as well as her experimentation with different materials—such as collage, photography, and painting—are an expression of capturing what feels important to her at the moment.

Beresin received her degree from the School of Fine Art in Budapest. Recent solo exhibitions include Beware of the spirits that you call, M+B (Los Angeles), All About Eva (and Me), Charim Galerie (Vienna), and Nothing every-thing is special, OOPS Kenny Schachter (online). Beresin’s work was exhibited in recent group shows at Galerie Nagel Draxler (Cologne) and Philipp Zollinger Galerie (Zurich). Her monograph, My Mother’s Diary: Ninety-Eight Pages, was published by Verlag für moderne Kunst in 2019 and presents Beresin’s paintings that were based on her mother’s journal written after her liberation from Auschwitz.
