Eva Hild; 'Bumling', Sweden 1999, Estimate 30 000 – 40 000 SEK / 2 790 – 3 720 EUR.
Eva Hild lives and works in Sparsör outside Borås. She mainly makes sculptures in white or black stoneware clay; organic, non-figurative forms that move between inner and outer space. The ceramic figures are hand-built with thin clay rolls which she slowly curls up to volumes, which are then polished with sandpaper. The surface is sprayed with kaolin, a white fine-grained porcelain clay, and the larger ones are finally coated with silicate paint. The process is long lasting, only making the structure can take five to six months.
Her first separate exhibition was held at the Inger Molin Gallery in Stockholm in 2000 and her sculptures have since been exhibited at the Nancy Margolis Gallery in New York and Galerie NeC in Paris. In January 14 - February 20, 2016 Hild displayed monumental sculptures in the exhibition "Sinkhole" at Galleri Andersson / Sandström, Stockholm.
She is represented in museums and art collections nationally and internationally, including at the Musee de Sèvres in Paris, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Museum of Contemporary Ceramics in Shanghai and the National Museum in Stockholm.
