Collection: Eva Lootz

Eva Lootz (Vienna, 1940) is an Austrian plastic artist who has become a Spanish citizen2 and has resided in Spain since 1967.

After beginnings that reveal an unequivocal desire to transgress the historical limits of art as the work becomes the trace of a process, a period from which his plates of ephemeral materials such as cotton, earth, wadding, paraffin-coated seeds and his works with binding liquids such as sealing wax, synthetic glues and wax, undertakes a broad and exhaustive reflection that aims to go back to the origin of the devaluation of matter with respect to the idea, a devaluation that in most cultures runs parallel to that of the degradation of the value given to women. In the course of these reflections, he studies the processes of extraction and treatment of minerals and raw materials, the exchange routes, the sociocultural repercussions, the traces on the landscape and on the language.

His work is represented in numerous private collections and public institutions such as: Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía; Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona, ​​Barcelona; Museum of Abstract Art of Cuenca, Cuenca; Artium, Basque Center-Museum of Contemporary Art, Vitoria; Malmö Museum of Contemporary Art, Sweden; Municipal Museum of Madrid, Madrid; Patio Herreriano Museum, Valladolid; Galician Center of Contemporary Art, Santiago de Compostela; Atlantic Center of Modern Art, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria; Caja de Burgos Art Center, Burgos; Fotomuseum, Zarauz; Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia, Murcia; Contemporary Art Collection Association; National Library, Madrid; Bank of Spain, Madrid; Foreign Bank of Spain; Asturias Savings Bank, Oviedo; Burgos Savings Bank, Burgos; BBVA Collection, Madrid; The Chase Manhattan Bank, New York, United States; Caixa de Pensions Foundation, Barcelona; Friends of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Foundation, Madrid; Coca-Cola Foundation, Madrid; Juan March Foundation, Palma de Mallorca; Antonio Pérez Foundation, Cuenca; Official Credit Institute, Madrid; Unión Fenosa Collection, La Coruña; Art Collection of the Miengo City Council, Cantabria; Martín Blanco Collection, Segovia; Pilar Citoler Collection, Madrid; Santander.
