At first glance they would appear to be each other’s opposites, one emerging from the cradle of surrealist modernism in Paris and the other trained about 40 years later in the 1960s. Each has their own sculptural form of expression, one mainly in bronze, the other in plaster.

However, the two sculptors have more in common than one might think. Both Eric Grate and Eva Lange derive much of their inspiration from nature and from prehistoric Cycladic art, as well as folklorist African sculpture. Drawing on this cultural heritage, both have shaped their own, utterly personal creative language, in which they pare down and reduce the representative elements until only the most essential remains.
