With a knack for subversive humor
Thick Air brings together a new body of work by Hungarian-born artist Eva Beresin in which she offers a radical and intimate exploration of her life. The paintings can be seen as the culmination of a decade in which Beresin’s art has gained both speed and inventiveness. Her paintings of the carnivalesque are animated by a genuine interest in the intricacies of the soul. Grotesquely uneasy and playfully bold, the compositions capture her personal history as well as universal human themes.

EVA BERESIN (*1955, Budapest) has lived and worked in Vienna since 1976. Her subversive sense of humor developed over the course of her life. In her paintings, Beresin transforms the everyday horrors of existence into a tender examination of the contradictory nature of human behavior. With her intuitive grasp of the comedy of social transgression, she manages to evoke an infectious sense of relief in the face of tragedy.
