Summary note:
Eva Hild is a Swedish sculptor, famous for her otherworldly ceramic artwork. With a masterly precision she creates sculptures of white and black stoneware, shaped in swaying curls, as if a movement was caught and frozen in time. When the Swedish Arts Grants awarded her with the Form Award, they pinpointed her expression well: "Eva Hild's ultra-thin clay sculptures possess an intimacy of the handmade and tangible world. But here's also a distance, which confirms its aesthetic appeal. There is a duality of fragility and strength manifesting throughout her oeuvre. In these organic shapes, exterior and interior twists and turns through inner and outer pressure filling all cavities with a strong force." With her characteristic organic forms, Hild has become one of the most successful sculptors of today. She has a strong position in the international art scene and she is represented in major private and institutional collections around the world.
