Eva Lewis American, b. 1995


Eva Lewis’ work centers feminine identifying people and representation of their bodies in public places. Her work aims to juxtapose the use of a female body in settings and landscapes commonly seen in Renaissance and Baroque compositions and change the understanding of how, why, and where these figures most comfortably hold themselves. Placing the women in a setting where they have no forced prejudices and are allowed their own autonomy. The paintings are imagined scenarios using bright colors and separating worlds with tone, pigment, or mark. Each work tells a story of women in moments that are only dreams of a place in which the female figure was never personified as an object to anyone else but themselves.


Lewis is currently pursuing her MFA in Painting at Boston University, expected graduation in Summer 2022. She holds a BFA in Painting with minor in Art History from Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio. She has completed a Residency at Mount Gretna School of Art, Mount Gretna, Pennsylvania.
