Eve Stockton grew up in rural Ohio and now lives in Alexandria, VA. She is known for her large-scale woodcut prints inspired by close observation of nature and an eclectic interest in science. Eve received degrees in architecture with a minor in fine arts from Princeton and Yale and worked as a registered architect.
Today Eve uses her background in architecture and art to engage the variables of printmaking, enabling her to produce a body of dynamic, graphic images. Her prints are nature/science-based and have been exhibited at the National Academy of Science and have been reproduced on covers of Nature Genetics Magazine. Eve was featured in “Primal Power” in the May/June ’15 issue of Home & Design Magazine. She regularly exhibits in the CT, NY, and DC areas. Abroad, she has had one-person shows in Ireland and Nova Scotia.
Eve is an active member of the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Norwalk, CT; Silvermine Guild Arts Center, New Canaan, CT; and the Washington Project for the Arts, DC. She is represented by Long View Gallery, Washington, DC; Kenise Barnes Fine Art, Larchmont, NY; Bryant St. Gallery, Palo Alto, CA; and Carla Massoni Gallery, Chestertown, MD.
“A few of Stockton’s prints are based on triangle-based patterns, but she derives most of her motifs from nature. Hives, waves, petals and starbursts dominate this selection of the Alexandria artist’s work. The repeated images sometimes pit platinum tones against shades of blue, but are often in a narrow range of metallic shimmers. Eye-catchingly luminous and large enough to immerse the viewer’s attention, Stockton’s pictures are as mesmerizing as glints of sunlight on a rippling pond.”
