Eva Lundsager is a painter who makes work that addresses possibilities in painting within a structure of an imagined, changing space. Her abstract paintings seem to suggest unfamiliar landscapes that are simultaneously specific and indeterminate. Relying on varied processes of paint application, pours, drips, glazes, veils of color and brushstrokes large and small Lundsager’s work evokes deep space and a sense of watchful waiting.
Born in Buffalo in 1960, Lundsager grew up in semi-rural Maryland and received a BA in art from the University of Maryland. She then moved to New York in 1985 to attend the MFA program at Hunter College, while working as registrar for the ground-breaking Gracie Mansion Gallery in the East Village. After sixteen years in New York, she spent a decade in Saint Louis, Missouri. Since 2012 she has lived and worked in Boston.
Lundsager’s work has been included in many solo and group exhibitions, and been the subject of numerous reviews, articles and publications. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Dallas Art Museum, the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Saint Louis Art Museum, among others, and she has been honored with a Guggenheim Fellowship in Painting.
