Photography Janusz - Positively Hyped


Born in Germany, Eve Arnold moved to Sydney in 1973 and has lived in Perth, Western Australia, since 1975.


In 1991 she took up Fine Arts studies at Claremont School of Art and later at the Western Australian School of Art, Design and Media and has since held successful exhibitions in Australia, Germany and Italy.


Since completing her Advanced Diploma of Arts Management, Eve has managed several fine art galleries. She was also the Western Australian arts writer for the Art Review section of the national publication Business Review Weekly between 1996 and 1999.


From 2002 to 2008 Eve was the Event Coordinator and Administrator of the Perth Jazz Society. Through interaction with musicians, Eve’s works are often inspired by music.

After seeing her art work while touring in Australia, multi Grammy Award winning New York jazz saxophonist Gary Bartz invited Eve to create a work for each song on his soon to be released album Feminine Side, which will honour the songs of many famous female musicians. Eve’s works will feature on the album cover and lining. In May 2008, Eve’s works were successfully exhibited as part of the Out From Down Under & Beyond show at Agora Gallery, Chelsea, New York 2008. In November 2009 Eve Arnold held her sixth solo exhibition of two-dimensional works. The Exhibition took place at Elements Art Gallery in Perth.and also featured sculptrures by Viktor Eszenyi.


For many years watercolour was Eve’s preferred art medium. By applying multiple layers of watercolour glazes, she achieves a rich, saturated finish, often enhanced by gold leaf, reminiscent of ancient icons.


More recently Eve has explored working in aluminum and copper, under the tutelage of renowned Perth artist Brian McKay. For the artist it is a fascinating process to transform industrial sheets of metal into two-dimensional works of art. Contrast in tone is achieved by offsetting blank against etched and distressed monochromatic surfaces that refract the light, creating areas of brilliance or illusory shadow.


Some works are descriptive; others seem abstract yet have symbolic levels of significance. These contemporary, streamlined works are enriched by accents in 24 carat gold leaf or warm organic red earth pigments (Pindan from the Kimberly and Pilbara areas of WA) and set themselves apart through simplicity of line whilst still capturing the essence of the subject matter.


Eve has staged 6 solo exhibitions of her works and participated in over 60 group shows in Australia, Italy and Germany. In Australia, Eve has exhibited at Delshan Gallery of Fine Arts, Melbourne, Livewebb Art Gallery, Mt Lawley, Perth Galleries, Subiaco, Accent Gallery, Subiaco and Yallingup Galleries, Yallingup. In 2001 she organized and took part in a group exhibition at the Giubbe Rosse Gallery, Florence. In 2002 Eve received the Farfalla D’Oro Gold Award when participating in the international Concorso Nazionale exhibition in Italy as well as receiving their Judges’ Choice Award in 2003 and the Libellula D’Oro Gold Award in 2004.


In 2009 Eve was commissioned by the Perth Mint to create three Works for the Sir David Brand Award For Tourism and in 2007 Eve received a commission from the Department of Culture and the Arts to create 17 award prizes for the WA Business and the Arts Partnership Awards.


Eve’s works are held in institutions and private collections in Australia, Asia, Europe, New Zealand and the USA.

“'It is through her beautifully crafted aluminium works that Eve Arnold achieves a unique and ever changing abstract and contemplative quality.”

“Arnold’s artwork is positively breathtaking; her beautiful sense of composition, her confident, unwavering hand and unique choice of medium augments her significance in the world of fine art.”

Agora Gallery , New York , 2008

“Stunning to behold, the artwork of Eve Arnold is an enchanting vision that celebrates a harmony between human achievements and the natural world. With distinct elegance, Arnold ’s works explore the disparate worlds of nature and industry by creating flowing, organic shapes with metals, such as aluminum, copper and gold. She creates nuances in tone and texture by etching and distressing the metal and juxtaposing it with uniform areas, before adding the finishing touches of 24-carat gold. The results are awe-inspiring, as delicate stems of flowers rise and petals bloom forth, ocean waves curl toward the shoreline, and amorphous shapes allude to seeds and rebirth.”

Art-Mine , New York , 2008

“Eve’s artworks remind me of the best Haiku poetry, combining form and content in a meaningful, yet compact way. They are like meditations; they bring one closer to nature. The subject matter is expressed with a minimum of lines, painting a mental image in the viewer’s mind. As in Haiku, many themes include nature, feelings, or experiences.”

Gary Bartz, New York , 2007

“Eve Arnold’s work is delicate and detailed, but with an underlying strength.  There is also a subtle playfulness, as she makes gentle puns on her own name, and explores personal experiences. The images are realistic, but have little to do with direct reporting. Rather, the meticulously detailed representation of flowers and fruits lifts them out of the ordinary into the symbolic levels of significance. Her works amply repay a careful and thorough analysis of their deeper meanings.”

Dr. Jan Altmann (about Eve Arnold’s Watercolours), Perth , 2003
