Born in Prague and raised in East Germany, Eva Sochorova received her art degree from Central Washington State University. She has studied at the San Francisco Art Institute with Wally Hedrick and at the Art Students’ League in New York with Knox Martin and Larry Poons. She has taught art both at Watkins Art Institute and in the Metro Nashville Public Schools and she is co-founder of the Nashville Collage Collective. In 2008, New York’s Gallery and Studio Magazine described Sochorova’s work as “beautifully melded colors and geometric forms in the manner of the Russian Constructivists, albeit with softer, more lyrical paint handling” and most recently referred to her pieces in a 2010 West Side Arts Coalition Exhibit as “gemlike paintings” with colors “palpable and intense, lending her work a magical aura.” She was awarded the “Best of Show” prize in the 2011 Temple Arts Festival, a national two and three dimensional art exhibit held annually in Nashville.
