Though Eva Goetz's work is colorful and playful, her work is also a serious platform where deep questions are considered: Are we marching toward a future filled with health and well-being or are we on a destructive course, drunk and blinded with new creative ability? Are we fully considering the impact of innovations on society (democracy) and our planet?
Born in Texas with Mexico next door, Eva Goetz was influenced by the land: the bright and dusty colors found both within the landscape and in narrative folk paintings. Such colors punctuate Goetz’s robots in the form of dots. As the artist explains:
“Dots are both energy and form. As circles, dots can become windows into consciousness. As points, dots can punctuate beginnings and endings. Or perhaps dots are points of light or energetic origins or infinity itself. We all begin and end somewhere.”
