Eva Hild

Nancy Margolis Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming solo exhibition of Swedish sculptor Eva Hild. The exhibition will be on view November 7th, 2019, through January 4th, 2020.

After a hiatus of five years, Hild is to have her fifth solo exhibition at the gallery, comprising eight black and white sculptures of graduated sizes in new but familiar forms. The signature white sculptures, complex and intricate, maintain an aesthetic elegance of circles and openings that loop in, out, and around each work in a continuous contour. Exploring alternative clay coloration, Hild created a group of three dark sculptures in unique variations, Bump (2019), Tuber (2019), and Hump (2019). She recognized that by altering the material, an important effect occurred that changed the expression of her pieces. New convex shapes evolved, center space opened up, and unusual protuberances and outgrowths appeared. While the white and dark sculptures have their own distinct character, they not surprisingly share a similar dynamic.

The sculptures in this exhibition are made of stoneware clay, with the exception of Hold (2019), which is cast in aluminum, painted white, and the largest sculpture in the group. Its metal structure allows it to serve as an indoor or an outdoor sculpture. Hild hand-builds each ceramic piece using a traditional coil technique. The eight new sculptures that make up this solo exhibition recall Hild’s early work that established her reputation as Sweden’s most eminent contemporary sculptor. At the same time, they present strikingly fresh perspectives that signal a noteworthy evolution in her artistic language.
