"I get my ideas by walking on the streets of NYC and observing people and the environment. My topics relate to my experiences in the Holocaust and my life in NYC for the past 61 years. I am also keenly interested in the biblical history of Israel where I feel I have my spiritual roots. Most of my work, at its core, is derived from my emotions and my experiences." - Eva Deutsch Costabel

Gallery 307 "CONNECTIONS"

"Color is everything. If there is no color, it might as well be a drawing." Eva

"I can't live without color, and I don't do pastels." Diane

Connections Statement

"When we met, there was instant recognition that we understood the same things. We come from different eras and places, and different backgrounds, but our pieces speak a common language.

We love color! The stronger and more intense, the better. Color is life and emotion, strength and courage.

Color is essential. Design and pattern are important, whether it’s a line of paint, a stitch, a brushstroke or a printed piece of fabric. Our works share a dialogue of color, line and pattern. They enhance and compliment each other. Relationships and similarities emerge. We invite the viewer to enjoy the connections."

Eva Deutsch Costabel at Advanced Style

Meeting artist Eva Deutsch Costabel was truly an amazing and inspiring experience. She has lived and worked in New York for 57 years, after surviving the Holocaust and fleeing for her life for several years. She arrived in New York in 1949 and worked under artist Franz Kline. During this time she created deeply personal abstract paintings informed by her emotional journey.

Eva told me, " Living in New York you must be educated. I don't have many prejudices, but Boring I can't stand." She considers herself a colorist choosing to eat and dress in the colors that fill her wonderful works of art. My short visit with her could not do her story justice. For more on Eva's amazing journey check out her website and blog.

Eva Deutsch Costabel: Paintings and Drawings 1950-2010

Opening Reception: Thursday, January 20th, 6-8pm
Show runs: January 20th-February 17th, 2011
Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-5pm

Gallery 307
307 7th Avenue, Suite 1401, NYC 10001 (between 27th & 28th Streets)

“Paintings: 1950- 2010” will feature the art of 86-year-old artist, Eva Deutsch Costabel. Ms. Costabel, a Holocaust survivor, fled her native Zagreb in 1941 during the Nazi occupation. After her internment at an Italian concentration camp in Croatia, she joined with the Yugoslav resistance as an army nurse and staff artist for resistance publications. Her art training continued after the war in Rome at the Academy of Fine Arts and later at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She has called New York her home since 1949. The solo show at Gallery 307 will exhibit Ms. Costabel’s paintings and drawings from the early 1950s through 2010. Her style flows between realist, semi-abstract and abstract, with her striking use of color being the standard throughout her work.
