Eva Kolosvary-Stupler
at the Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, California
Recommendation by Kathy Zimmerer

Eva Kolosvary-Stupler is known for muscular assemblages bristling with character and energy. Originally a printmaker, she has returned to her two dimensional roots in remarkably incisive selection of drawings of fruit, her assemblages and abstractions made over the last several years.  The fruit drawings are precisely detailed and glowing with shimmering color. Particularly compelling is her drawing of a disintegrating red pepper that retains only its seeds and organic skeletal form. Her "Dying Poppies" is a lovely pointillist rendering that recalls Odilon Redon's bouquets. Drawings of her assemblages are a tour de force interpretation of the three dimensional sculpture. "Emanations" convey a whirling energy created by geometric and cursive marks skillfully united on one surface. Her "Connectivity" series caps the exhibit, a contemporary version of the Renaissance "Vanitas" theme in which life in all its Technicolor swirls around a skull or skeletal remnant, reminding the viewer of the inherent dichotomy of life.


Exhibition runs through September 4.
