or heavier archival paper, to render them as paintings.

Eva Schicker’s delicate arabesque ink drawings reveal tiny figures and bits of poetic text. Her lines never connect; they bunch together like commuters on a train always preserving a smidgen of personal space.  – Charles Schultz The Brooklyn Rail, July 2012.

Eva Schicker co-founded the Himalayan-Tibetan Thangka Arts with Sonam Rinzin at ethan pettit gallery in 2015, and has been a student of Sonam Rinzin since. Much of her current works feature iconographies and techniques used in the Himalayan Thangka Arts tradition.
