The World Re-Imagined by Eva Lake

Posted on December 15, 2016 by Erick Rios

Eva Lake is a dynamic artist who creates alluring collages. She is represented by Frosch and Portmann in NYC. A few weeks ago they stopped by to submit a framing project of a series of Eva's work called Typeface. We were impressed by the mystical yet precise quality of her art.

We built custom frames using our signature Rivington Hardwoods in a coffee finish and continued the process by floating the artworks with Japanese paper and wheat paste. Finally we ensured that her pieces would be protected from UV rays and dust while being displayed by choosing Museum Glass as the glazing. The frames turned out beautifully and her attention grabbing pieces really took center stage.

Eva herself has had a very colorful and exciting career that she details online. Besides her career in art, she's been an actress, sang in post-punk bands, lived in New York while working as a makeup artist and in fashion, and had an extensive career in radio. Throughout it all, she's continued to make collages and paint. Her work has been featured in books, buildings and art publications worldwide. If you'd like to learn more about Eva, please check her website or her Tumblr for a unique peek into her world.
