Eva Moflárová (* 1981) has been visibly present (not only) on the Košice scene since the time of her studies. In the early years, she was influenced by prof. Juraj Bartusz, while the minimality of the expression, which has its roots in this period, has been maintained in his work to this day. He alternates between painting and sculpture, but rearranges their borders in his own way - he engages in "shadow" painting in three-dimensional work, while the hanging painting does not deny the sculptural basis. The key measure is for Moflár's thinking, almost all of her works are a magnification of their theme, concept, specific shape or spatial reasoning. The first, abstract-gestural period has been replaced by parenting topics for a relatively long time. In them, the author, unlike other contemporary artists, does not address personal contexts, she is more interested in the universal side of motherhood, more than intimacy, perhaps she follows its rituality. Modular thinking, multiplication in a sense up to pictogram units proves the effort for the greatest possible universality of her artistic intention. It is all the more interesting to what disturbing form it manages to place this universality - the seeming smoothness of the motives hides various problematic nodes, often subconscious or just suspected.
