About the Artists
Barbara Sala is a painter known internationally for her colourful symbolic paintings. Her motto is “Know thyself” and let the inner light shine through. As a naïve painter she uses the mysterious dreamlike quality of a childlike signature as a tool to weave in a challenging sincerity the raw contents of her life. In doing this she heals herself and gives the chance to the onlookers to find part of themselves.
Eva Hoedeman is a painter and sculptor from Munich, Germany and has been in Canada for over 50 years developing her craft. She attended Concordia University to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in painting and sculpting. If she had to describe her art it would be ‘expressionistic’. For Eva, art is her connection to the soul and beauty of all living things. Acrylic paint on canvas is her preferred medium for artistic expression. She always begins by painting the eyes of her subject and once she has ‘discovered their secret’ the rest follows by itself. She is happy and satisfied with an artwork when the subjects have come alive.
