5th Dimensional Artwork - Eva A. Lindberg



5th Dimensional




Eva A. Lindberg

                                  Auto Biography

I was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1960, to my Polish born mother, a scientist and a physician, and my Swedish born father, a piano teacher. Even though my mother was a scientist she also wrote many poems and published a few books. Her uncle was a known scientist Leopold Infeld, who wrote several papers with Albert Einstein, one popular science book 'The Evolution of Physics' (see below)

Stories and music were an important part of family life for my older sister, my parents, and me. Painting and drama have always been my passions. In 1975 we moved to Israel. I attended the Telma Yalin high school for the Arts in Tel Aviv, where I dedicated my time to drawing and sculpting. Upon graduation I won a National Arts Contest for a sculptured piece entitled "The White Curve."

In 1986, I graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design in Jerusalem with a Bachelor of Design degree in Architecture. During my years at Bezalel, I also studied abroad at the Boston Architectural Center in Massachusetts and at the University of Architecture in Venice, Italy. After graduation, I worked for Turner & Associates architectural offices in Jerusalem.

In 1987, I moved to Berkeley, CA, where I was offered a Graphic Design position. As I transitioned into this new profession by developing both illustration and desktop skills, I found that I was aided by my educational background in design planning and rendering, which helped me convey meaning through images.

As an architectural student in Israel I was keen on maintaining my drawing and painting skills, and took extra courses in landscapedrawing with Gershon Von Schwartze and still life drawing with Avinoam Kosowsky. The same inspiration held true in the Bay Area, and consequently as I settled into place here I again began to seek out art classes. I studied figure drawing and illustration at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco, and took mixed media courses at the University of California in Berkeley, where I also had a special class with Lee Lorenz, famous for his cartoons in "The New Yorker."

The years that I had dedicated to rendering, drawing, painting and sculpting eventually led me to see and develop a style of my own that I call "5th Dimensional Artwork." In 1991, while studying at the Energy Art School in Berkeley, directed by Ross Drago, I synthesized all the different modalities in which I worked into one concept and expression. Most of the 5th Dimensional Artworks are oil on canvas. They convey images from an abstract but suggestively figurative source of inspiration and incorporate many multi dimensional aspects.

I have exhibited these works and others internationally and locally, e.g. European Who's Who art shows. As an additional creative outlet, I perform multi-media dances accompanied by projected images as a means of bringing the "3rd dimensional content" of the canvas out into the open. I find this enhances the "5th Dimensional" experience beyond the usual visual intake and allows the observer an intangible sensation of entering into "another world," free from our known perceptions and our day to day life.
