Eva Lange

B. 1935, Stockholm, Sweden.

Eva Lange’s work often depart from nature, nature reimagined and reshaped through her eyes and hands into minimal sculpture. The sculptures have something of a tongue- in-cheek attitude, with imperfection as a hindrance for the eye to quickly scan over the work. Heavy materials meet the fragile, bronze meets alabaster and plaster. Her studio is covered in a fog of white dust, created in the physical making of the, often, soft shapes. A sheer ring made of alabaster meets the heaviness of the bronze, the movements and changes in nature immortalized as shapes.
