Eva Lundsager

Eva Lundsager is a contemporary artist I've been looking to a lot for my own work because of her emphasis on color and texture. She uses the most vibrant colors in amazing ways, even though her palette is neon at times the paintings are never overwhelmingly bright. The colors are carefully selected to compliment, something that can be very difficult to do when working with such a saturated palette.

 Another notable detail about her work is how many different ways she applies paint to her canvas. The variety in technique creates different textures and effects that create a beautiful variety within her paintings. Her process is fairly unusual, she flips her canvas throughout painting to see the possibilities in every drip rather than keeping to just one concept like most artists--this looseness in technique is perhaps what makes her work so strong.
