Eve De Haan’s neon artworks share snippets of stories for viewers to finish
30 June 2021
The London-based artist tells us about the importance of storytelling in her practice: “It is a way of carrying culture.”

Based in London, Eve De Haan’s portfolio is replete with neon artworks, each sharing a different story, thought or catchphrase through short snippets of text. It’s an approach that developed out of her theology degree, where she realised encapsulating narratives through the written word was the best way to evoke collective emotions in an audience. With clear visual references to artists like Tracey Emin and Martin Creed, Eve’s artworks probe topics including technology, youth culture, and relationships.

The billboards in places including Shoreditch, Fulham, Peckham and Dalston will display Eve’s art – an image of a deserted street after dark, with the poignant, glowing words, ‘Text Me When You Get Home,’ a familiar phrase which often replaces ‘goodbye’ for women, representing how safeguarding and safety fears have become a routine way of life for females after dark.

Say it with a neon, Eve De Haan’s installations
January 2019
Eve De Haan is an artist from London who has exhibited her works in Europe and America. After graduating in theology she decided to communicate through art, especially that of installation, developing a strong body of work that examines the concepts of change and the imprint of technology on youth culture. In 2017 her works were exhibited at Museum of Neon Art in Los Angeles and on a variety of platforms including GQ, The Times Style, and Refinery29.

Her creations are provocative and daring and they deepen the concepts of gender roles and the nuances of meaning within a sentence. The power of words, combined with that of the images become a very powerful weapon on social platforms such as Instagram.

Eve De Haan, otherwise known as Half a Roast Chicken is a London-based artist whose love of the written word can be felt through her nostalgic creations. Exhibiting her work across Europe and America, Eve’s curious nature is expressed predominantly through her neon works. And while her degree in Theology may seem unexpected, it has arguably been the catalyst of her creations and the connection between unusual objects and the lyrical text that appear over them.

Neon Wonderland
April 2018
Since neon’s commercial inception by French chemist George Claude, the Noble gas has captured many a gaze. But it was the works of Bruce Nauman in the 70’s and, more recently, Tracey Emin which has bought about the next loving phase of neon art works, establishing neon as a must-have for many contemporary art collectors.

... Eve De Haan is a London-based artist who has exhibited her work in Europe and in America. Her Theology degree has helped inform and influence her work, developing a strong body of installations which examine concepts of change and the imprint technology makes on youth culture.

Her creations are provocative and challenging. Through her love of the written word, Eve delves into the concepts of gender roles, exploring the gradients and shades of meaning within a statement. Eve finds neon an ideal medium to explore the expression and the changeable nuances within words that are so readily used in society today.

Neon Art Por Eve De Haan
September 2017
Eve De Haan es una artista de Londres. Habiendo dejado la universidad con una licenciatura en Teología, Eve ha dedicado tiempo a crear; ha escrito, ilustrado y auto-publicado un libro para niños, tomado en proyectos de diseño de interiores, y produjo una colección de ilustraciones usando luces de neón.

Su amor por la palabra escrita le ha dado una inclinación hacia las palabras en su arte, se adentra en el mundo de la expresión y del matiz. Eva considera el neón como el medio perfecto para acentuar cómo hay gradientes y tonos de significado dentro de una declaración. Ella cree que la luz realmente agrega sombra al significado de una declaración.

Su último trabajo ha sido un reflejo de la naturaleza imponente de la tecnología en la cultura juvenil dentro de la sociedad actual.

With Her Own Hands: She Bends Highlights 29 Female Neon Artists
September 2017
The Museum of Neon Art recently debuted She Bends: Women in Neon, the largest and most inclusive all-female neon exhibition… Ever. Curated by neon artist Meryl Pataky, She Bends features 29 artists who use neon as their primary medium, despite being in the midst of a primarily male-dominated trade. Each work is intimate, with the woman either bending the tubes herself or installing and assembling with her own hands. With a myriad of backgrounds – some of the featured artists have their own neon shops or work in one while others teach the craft, this show shines light on an often overlooked demographic within the art world.

Pushing back against the notion that neon is solely a man’s field, She Bends allows us to appreciate a group of women who craft exquisite pieces with their own two hands. Featured artists include Kate Hush, Eva De Haan, Megan Stelljes, Meryl Pataky, Olivia Steele, and more, this exhibition is not to be missed. On display at Glendale’s Museum of Neon Art from now until February 11th, 2018.
