The garden as a place of inspiration is a central source of motifs for Eva Wagner's current creative period, in which she devotes herself to vegetation, its structures and the painterly processing of them. Wagner's painting is complex and multi-layered, the deliberate reduction of contrast creates a dream-like impression. There are several layers of gouache and acrylic paints applied on top of each other in a glazing technique. Purely painterly, geometric structures are woven into the plant-like composition. The finest shades of green ennoble the vegetal composition by only hinting at their own colour of the soulful grey composition.
