Eigil’s practice is concerned with perceptions of light, and it’s behaviour in interior spaces. Working primarily from memory, the paintings hover between representing a recollection of an observed moment and a painterly construction on the canvas.

He was the 2014 1st prize winner of the Gemini Art Prize, as well as the NEAC Annual Trust award. He has exhibited in Norway and the UK, and has many years of experience with teaching.
