My name is Eva Sykes, I’m an artist/filmmaker passionate about social realist and experimental film, working with mixed media techniques such as paint, sculpture and stop frame animation. I enjoy observing human nature with all its flaws and imperfections, often exploring challenging dysfunctional characters and relationships, exposing both the agony and the ecstasy which lies beneath. This is expressed in my work which has a visceral quality and can be both grotesque and ethereal at the same time.
I also use symbolism and metaphors within my work to create further depth and meaning, and produce images which are engaging, emotionally charged and empathetic. My approach is versatile and can be seen in my filmmaking, animation, paintings, sculpture, costumes and film poster designs.
