The sculptures of Swedish artist Eva Larsson explore societal standards and social hierarchy versus the liberation and courage of the individual. Her figurative ceramic sculptures interact as a mediation of social interaction and place the individual within the context of a greater social and historical composite.
Eva Larsson was born in Boras, Sweden, in 1964. She received her BFA from the Konstfack University of Art and Design in in 1988. Since then her life has revolved around art. An emphasis on exploratory creative practice has brought her where she is today with a plethora of international exhibitions and public art commissions. Larsson’s raku fired ceramic figures are coveted for their striking intimacy and rarity, as her process is complex and the outcome is unpredictable. Each piece is hand formed, unique, and individually pulled from kiln while glowing hot.
