Eve Leader

Louis Kahn, the American architect, said: "good architecture makes the intagible tangible so as to evoke the intangible." I long to do just that.

I paint about the human condition, about the mystery of life. About the tantalizing fact that we have only intimations, and will never know, the nature of reality. About the illusion that life is secure whereas in fact anything could happen at any time to totally change its course. About loss, fragility, old age, and mortality. And also about compassion and about love offering redemption from our plight.

Figures in my work are often androgynous and not of a paticular person. Rather they are about what confronts us because we are human.
