EVORIARD tells a story of 'becoming', for the sculpture looks like a living, dynamic substance, which keeps on growing and transforming. This outside sculpture is designed fully digital, yet, it is manufactured by hand, using polyester. The structure seems to be the result of a spontaneous, natural erosion process (think on how water hollows out rocks). At the same time, the bright colours and the shiny surface seem to contradict the organic, and give the sculpture the allure of an artefact. With EVORIARD, references to Henry Moore and the modernist sculptors are evident.
As always, the artist tries to create an openness that will attract the viewer to consider his work from different angles. The sculptural contradictions, such as inside/outside and rough/smooth, make this work purely poetic. The clever use of color enhances the idea of transformation and evolution, and results in an intriguing visual language that has a surprising impact.
