Éva Köves – a painter of shadows

“The atelier of Éva Köves bears a complete resemblance to the romantic image of that of a ‘proper’ artist. It is situated in the attic of an apartment house, and a large iron key is use to unlock its door. Inside, everything is well in order, even painting residue, and the fabrics used for cleansing the brushes have been nearly folded on a corner table. There are a number of paintings leaning against the walls of the small atelier, most of them portraying tarpaulins used for covering buildings, their support structures, and ruptures in them.”
