In their works, the authors turn to the theme of the City. In the series of paintings by Eva, this is the Eternal City, the city as the guardian and bearer of great European culture, a huge Museum. in which artifacts of all eras and styles are lovingly collected, wandering through which we find ourselves in different historical places, accurately reading cultural codes and patterns.
In her series of pastels, Liza Kozlova addresses the dear hearts of every Minsk resident, the beloved and recognizable places of Minsk - filtered through the prism of something very personal and painfully important to her, the city becomes a place of power and a source of inspiration. Her works are like a kind of portal, a kind of “Madeleine cookie” by Marcel Proust, which takes us into our own memories, forcing us to relive again and again the stories and events carefully stored in the memory of each of us.
