CONVERSIONS by Eva Davis
CONVERSIONS are expressionist painting. Paintings from Eva Davis’s CONVERSIONS series are associated with change. Eva Davis’ paintings represent a complete departure from figurative painting. In her works, we see a free assimilation of various graphic elements or a complete deformation of known forms. We have the feeling of changing, modifying values and moving towards some new theme. The artist freely develops the initial theme, then changes and deforms it. Change is the essence of Eva’s painting. However, it is not about changing the form.
Eva Davis paints without planning, making impulsive rather than controlled decisions. This allows her to achieve a balance – to create on the border of consciousness and subconsciousness. Liquid acrylic paint is her favorite medium. It allows very impulsive painting because it dries very quickly. This feature of acrylic paint perfectly reflects the painter’s temperament. Eva is impulsive, she doesn’t wait too long between adding new elements to the canvas. She applies multiple layers of paint, adding, and never removing elements. Thanks to this, she achieves extremely spontaneous effects.
Her expressionist paintings in the abstract style are characterized by spontaneity with elements of care for form. She paints under the spur of the moment. Unexpected painting solutions are a very important part of her creative process. Her works often show unexpected and unusual artistic solutions. For Eva Davis, creativity is about processing and expanding. This means that the final work is the result of a process, not the result of a planned scheme. Since such a process is cyclical, it is also infinite.

Eva Davis painting
Eva’s paintings, expressionist painting, is characterized by a combination of spontaneity and elements of exceptional care for form. The artist presents an abstract subject and freely manipulates it in an open formula. In her expressionist art, the painter breaks with the sense of reality as we generally perceive it. She does not look for known, obvious forms. Eva often experiments to get to know what is new, to discover what is still unknown. Her paintings in an abstract style are an inspiration for further works.
A new look at her previous works gives her new motivation and gives the next stage of work a new dimension. It’s a way to look for inspiration. It is a way for constant development. According to her, change takes place primarily on an immaterial, psychological level. Her expressionist painting is detached from the sense of reality as we generally perceive it. They create a unique and private world of the artist.
