Eva Eun-Sil Han’s mixed-media collage works use geometry and line to create surreal and mysterious scenes. By replicating circle cut-outs, the Belgium-based artist obscures parts of photographic images with what look like a cross between clouds and censor pixels. In some pieces, the circles are the focus of the work, layered on top of one another in fish-scale patterns. The repetition of color and size creates a soothing visual rhythm, which gives a feeling of cohesion despite the variety of patterns. Often invoking the baroque period, the images have a regal feel to them, which is reinforced by the stark black and white with gold palette in some pieces.
