Eugenia Raskopoulos

b. 1959
Czech Republic

Eugenia Raskopoulos was born in the Czech Republic in 1959. Since her first solo exhibition in 1984 at Darklight Photography Gallery Fremantle, Western Australia, Raskopoulos has used photography and video to explore abstract visuals and settings, concentrating on themes of communication, interaction and the ambiguity of language. Works such as Footnotes (2012) – a three screen installation work of images of feet daubed with red letters that aligned to suggest words – highlighted the tendency in viewers to interpret coherence within abstraction.
