EVA DOLGYRA - Born and raised in Athens, Greece. Graduated in 2011 from the Glasgow School of Art, with a BA(Hons) in Visual Communication.

Now based in Glasgow, working as a Graphic Designer by day and Freelance Illustrator by night.

My influences cover a wide spectrum both thematically and geographically, with a particular fondness for themes touching on the strange, the bizarre and the imaginary.

Often reflected in my work is my soft spot for traditional printmaking; however I believe there is a right tool for each job and enjoy using my laptop just as much as I do a chisel.

Two complimentary posters to The Complete & Updated Guide to the Apocalypse.

Hand-printed one colour collographs.

This print, entitled Time, relates to a larger project. It is a variant of one of the illustrations from a booklet, The Guide to the Apocalypse, which I wrote, illustrated and hand-printed as part of my final year degree work. In the context of the booklet, the image has certain metaphorical connotations relating to the Apocalypse theme, itself set at the end of times.

As it stands alone however, this print is open to free interpretation by the observer. The hourglass has been used by many over the years as a tool to symbolise time. This abstracted version, much like the infamous idiom about the glass being half-empty or half-full, can be read with either a positive or negative outlook in mind.

Two hemispheres, representing past and future and connected through the present, which changes with every drop. They could be nourishing one another, feeding off each other, interchanging in a continuous loop. The image, suspended in time and space, is itself a vessel, a vehicle giving the viewer access to his or her own personal understanding of Time.
