Lives and works in Vienna

Eva Schlegel is one of the best known and most successful contemporary artists in Austria. In addition to photographs and paintings, she also designs film works and installations in indoor and outdoor spaces. Here, she frequently experiments with different techniques and materials. Her works are mostly based on images found in the media or on her own photographs, often of people or landscapes which she edits or alters.

She has thus already produced an entire series of out-of-focus photographs, with all detail blurred, of women that convey the impression of having been painted. Schlegel thus challenges the viewer's perception. The blurring contributes in a manner to a focusing of the viewer's look and stimulates the imagination.
