In this print Kim Anno explores ideas about women’s identity and sexual fertility. In Eve, Anno processes images that are often related to a woman's identity—soft round shapes that resemble breasts or eggs move around the print. The title Eve refers to the first woman in the Biblical creation story, thus pushing the viewer to consider how far back these cultural associations are connected. Eve comes from the portfolio 10x10: Ten Women/Ten Prints, which was published by the Berkeley Art Center in 1995 to commemorate that year’s International Women’s Day (March 8th) and the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th amendment, which gave women in the U.S. the right to vote.

Kim Anno is a multimedia artist based in the Bay Area. Abstraction remains prominent in her practice throughout the decades resulting in works that draw the viewer in to engage with its complex ideas.
