Biography

Eva Lundsager's abstract paintings suggest an imagined world and have been called "naturalistic and hallucinatory, bucolic and dystopian…These equivocal visions of fire and blood under cheery skies suggest landscapes gone awry or battle scenes, fitting portrayals, perhaps, for a time of strife and of nature endangered.”  (Joseph R. Wolin, Eva Lundsager: New Paintings and Works on Paper, Greenberg Van Doren, NY, 2008). 

Lundsager grew up in what was then rural Maryland, studied art at the University of Maryland and went on to receive an MFA from Hunter College in New York. Recent exhibitions include Other Light Other Night at Van Doren Waxter in New York; Inspired at Drive-By Projects in Boston; Outside the Lines, a survey of contemporary abstraction at the Contemporary Art Museum Houston; and Elsewhere: Eva Lundsager at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, Maryland.

Lundsager's paintings have been written about in many publications including Art in America, Artforum, Bomb, the Boston Globe, the New York Times, the New Yorker, Time Out New York, and she has been honored with a Guggenheim Fellowship in Painting. Lundsager has work in the permanent collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, the Saint Louis Art Museum, the United State's State Department Art in Embassies program, and the Whanki Museum in South Korea.
