ABOUT THE ARTIST

Eva Schmutterer's appreciation for paper and its versatility began to develop at an early age when, as a young girl, she often watched her grandmother make cards and gifts out of paper.

In 1997, Eva left her home in Nuremberg, Germany, to begin a new life in Kamøyvær with her husband and a stray cat. While the transition to life in such a remote part of the world was initially challenging, she now feels quite at home.

A FRESH TAKE ON COLLAGE

Each of Eva's originals begins with a sketch made during walks around the island.

When a sketch is finished, she begins to cut and paste.

Eva can spend hours searching through her collection of old magazines to find pieces with the right colour and shading. She gradually builds the picture by glueing each piece one-by-one to the back, which helps her to achieve a quality of depth.
