MA work

Material Exchange

Mixed media installation signalling towards ideas of studio/site as a subjective and critically evaluated space. I aim to explore the progressive, self generative nature of making.

  • Eva Masterman’s practice endeavours to create a collective visual language that investigates the encounter between process, maker and viewer. Connecting gestures of surface and form are reactivated through site-specific curation and installation, creating tension through displacement of the familiar. Deeply routed in subjective making, disrupted imagery of the studio/site/workshop signal towards an underlying preoccupation with the value and relevance of labour and skill. Evoking the ruin, the architectural, the body, the work becomes a testament to the colluding nature of process and environment, a means to an end, where the means becomes the end.
