About Me

Eva Fidjeland is an artist born in Stockholm 1955. Her art reflects cultural influences from childhood years spent in Portugal, Lebanon, Iran and Afghanistan. In 1978 she went to live in the artists´ village Ein Hod, Israel. There she learned the art of making stained glass from the masterly Professor Joseph Chaaltiel. Upon returning to Stockholm she was approached by the Vasa Museum who appointed her to reconstruct glass parts for the Vasa Ship. The New Vasa Museum was inaugurated in 1990. Eva Fidjeland has exhibited her art work at numerous museums and galleries in Sweden and abroad. `What makes Swedish artist Eva Fidjeland so unique is her ability to create pieces of art using natural, earthly tones while maintaining a commitment to photography, digital art, and traditional visual art. Eva Fidjeland has the ability to see the elements of the world as they are, including the beauty that is nature and animal life, and recreate them in the form of art that has cultural relevance to audiences across the world. Her cultural pieces would fit seamlessly in any gallery or museum in any part of the world.´ (...) Quote from review by Dominic Richardson, writer/editor att Art Bracket LLC http://artbracket.com/profiles/blogs/eva-fidjeland-versatile-artist-with-perfect-earthly-style Swedish Artist Eva Fidjeland Featured by Resident Curator Kristen T Woodward, Professor of Art at Albright College The Dancer II Presumably a group of self-portraits, this series of Dancer portraits is equivocally voyeuristic in the soft keyhole shadowing of the pictures edges along with the penchant for embellishing costume. I like the tempered restraint of Dancer II, which presents a darker contrast to the overall blue pattern, and a haloed richness in the saturation of the figure´s hair and sienna background. While there´s a decisiveness in the sideways profile of the head, the delicate curl of golden hair points towards her mouth as if to await declaration. The Red Lady IV had a decidedly different mood despite small actual changes in the model lightning and attire. Being that the subject isn´t fully transformed, I don´t feel that different characters are being created, but that the viewer is invited into the psychological exploration of facets of an archetype. The direct stare of The Red Lady and elevated position of her face above the viewer´s natural eye-line creates an aura of superiority or rebellious dissent, while the conflicting orange and blue hues aid the instinct of competition. In a more graphic way, the figure is also presented as a Pop diva, haughtily looking down on the viewer in her feathered boa. Provocative in stature, the light source seems to glow from within rather than from an external bright light, and therefore she holds our interest and curiousity.
