Eve de Haan aka @halfaroastchicken applies her love of the written word to a growing portfolio of neon artworks. A theology graduate, the London-based artist describes her work as “progressive and positive” and, like Sara Pope, is interested in art as a form of communication.


The subtleties and gradients of expression offered by neon align with Eve’s fascination with “how words can mean different things to different people when presented through various mediums.”


Influenced by Tracey Emin, David Shrigley and Martin Creed, amongst others, Eve believes that “light adds shade” to the meaning of words, making neon her ideal medium. Her choice of phrase can be provocative, challenging, comforting. Small but powerful vignettes that tell a complete story. “I believe storytelling expands the imagination…it is a vital part of my creative practice. Everything you create is a story, from beginning to end.”


'Addicted To Love' Exhibition

United in their focus on connecting, communicating and provoking self-exploration, Eve de Haan and Sara Pope present 30 works that explore the meanings and perceptions of love. Through the artists’ feminine lenses, the works in ADDICTED TO LOVE invite contemplations about beauty, desire, perfection, generosity and compassion.


Working in distinctive visual styles and media – Eve de Haan in neon installations and Sara
Pope in hyperreal paintings – both UK-based artists have exhibited extensively in London
and internationally in solo shows, group shows and art fairs.
