Originally from the Czech Republic, Eva Lapka is an internationally recognized ceramic artist whose practice is marked by a refashioning of the human whereby she addresses issues of loss, memory, identity and the cycles of life and death. The works in this retrospective publication form a poignant pantheon of fragmented, twisted bodies, with a coherence that speaks not only of Lapka's great mastery of the medium, but of her emotional involvement and personal investment in her art. Eva Lapka has taught ceramics at several institutions in Montreal including the Visual Arts Centre, where she has been director since 1999. Her work has been exhibited in Canada, the United States and Europe. In English and French.
