The Art Elevator Episode #27: Nature, Culture and Contemporary SculptureJun 30, 2022
With 3D printing, virtual reality and other technologies available, sculptors have an opportunity to explore the three dimensional in a way not previously possible. Join me as I chat with Nick Ervinck on how he harnesses these technologies to create works that speak to the present and the future, though remain grounded in the lineage of sculpture through time.
As an artist I am particularly interested in the tension between nature and culture, between tradition and innovation.
I try to push the limits of digital possibilities, while maintaining respect for the (art) historical legacy.
When creating a work I investigate the possibilities between the organic and the digital, between the virtual and the physical.
I explore classical themes such as man (with a focus on the anatomy and the emergence of cyborgs), plants (especially their genetic manipulation),
masks and animals, always starting from an (art) historical background that I cut with contemporary pop and sci-fi culture.
