Here is how Eppel describes her work...

"I like to watch and then translate my experience into an object or painting, sometimes I can simulate that experience as an appetite. I have to taste it and digest its true colors, shapes or pattern. Since 2014 I have been traveling a lot and that made me think about how as an artist my landscape has changed."

"What is my role as an artist when I am not on my people’s land?"

"When enough time passes I start mythifying my past. I believe that some of my personal myths are also in our collective memory. I am looking for such formative moments for my work, referring to culture and religion."

"Therefore, in my art, I often choose to deal with my identity an an immigrant, the small town where my parents live acts as the backdrop for several of my paintings."

"At the same time, I am interested in the present as a woman who is simply hungry for the landscape she looks at."
