Eva Kolacz

`What distinguishes Eva Kolacz`s art is that the painterly gesture exists in a continuum of emotion. It extends a feeling directly into a language of light and paint. The two fuses, form, trail off, run, stop, resonate, and the painting becomes a stage for human emotions, one that has a continuity. One begins to believe these paintings exist in a real place and time, but this is a pure painterly universe, with each scenario generated by emotions, and painted with colour, produced by light.` John K. Grande, art expert and author.

Eva Kolacz is a full-time professional painter for over 36 years, who incorporates
her poetic vision (she is also a published poet) in her paintings. She graduated from
the Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto, and is a life-time member of the Ontario Society of Artists. Born in Poland, Eva began her career as a painter with her residency in Canada in 1981. She has participated in many shows in Canada, US, Japan, and Europe. Her work can be found in both public and private collections across North America and can be seen in museums of Poland and in the Government of Ontario Art Collection. She lives in Victoria on Vancouver Island and is dedicated to
express a magnificently stimulating beauty of British Columbia in her art.

`Through colour and shape, light and shadow, I would like to ignite thoughts that evoke emotions and personal reflections.` Eva Kolacz
