Eve Aschheim is an abstract painter and draftsperson who seeks to create dynamic abstract structures that exist between categories of thought. Her interests do not fall under the categories of image, object or design. She is after something more elusive and less stable—implied motion, states in the midst of change, a fictive reality that exists between multiple visual constructions. An interest in geometry, drawing, and the creation and alteration of pictorial space inform her work.
A John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellow (2012), Aschheim has also received grants from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the American Academy of Arts and Letters, among others. Her work has been exhibited internationally, with solo exhibitions at the The New York Studio School; the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; the Bannister Gallery, Rhode Island College; the Schick Art Gallery, Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY and at galleries in New York City, Philadelphia, Berlin, and Malmo, Sweden. Her work has been included in group exhibitions including “Twice Drawn”, Tang Museum, Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York; and the traveling exhibition “Drawn by New York: Six Centuries of Watercolors and Drawings at the New-York Historical Society”. Aschheim’s works were recently acquired by The Corcoran Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Morgan Library; the Yale University Art Museum; and Kupferstichkabinett, Nationalgalerie, Berlin. Aschheim is currently Lecturer in the Visual Arts Program, Lewis Center for the Arts, Princeton University. The volume Episodes with Wayne Thiebaud, interviews with the artist by Eve Aschheim and Chris Daubert, will be released February 2014 by Black Square Editions and distributed by D.A.P.
