DOMINICA – a colorful dream
GET OFF …..TIME-OUT ….LIFE on an Island, where i can find SUNSHINE during the whole year! This is, what Evelyn Böck-Challouf already wanted as a very young woman. It was a vision, which followed her troughout her whole professional-life .
2010 she has realized her dream. Three and a half years she was living on the small Caribbean-island DOMINICA and she got to know the island, the humans and their lives.
During these years she expierenced how the carebbean people enjoy their lives. A time, when she was dancing and crying with the Dominicans. A time when people came in her life and left and a time when she immersed in a multiculturell life. She encountered personalities, who inspired her, brought her to think, to laugh and to cry …… And she began to describe this region of the world in paintings.
Evelyn Böck-Challouf came back – with a new language she found for herself.
Art was guiding her from Dominica to Vienna. With colorful paintings in her luggage she arrived and tried to capture the multi-faced life in Dominica. ……Colors, temperament, sun and shaded-sides of life .
In her exposition „DOMINICA … a colorful dream“, the artist tries to put across the impressions from an Island, which could stand - maybe - as a synonym for „paradise".
The show offers bright and shining paintings in traditional colors and offers also a humorously critical view, which could unmask - in a soft and colorful way - a putative paradise.
