Permeated by the Marks of Life

An Interview with Eva Antonini

Eva Antonini was born in Rapperswil, Switzerland and spent much of her formative years there before moving to Geneva in 1981. Her artistic soul tried finding many outlets, through music and dance and even through her studies in linguistics. She traversed many a path, in England, United States, Italy, Middle and Far East. The gems of experience gathered from all these journeys and cultural interactions were collected with care and were tucked away into her heart that later on permeated into the moulds of clay or alabaster that Eva lovingly caressed and cajoled into various forms with her hands. Eva honed her skills under the watchful eyes of the masters in the studios of Oreste and Antonio Quattrini, Giorgio Eros Morandini, Giovanni Cimatti and Ettore Greco. She received honours during International Biennial of Contemporary Art in Florence in 2005. And it was only the beginning. The former student of linguistics has learnt to speak in a language that is all pervading in its sublimity.
