2013, Black granite of Zimbabwe
This Belgian sculptor prefers the solid stone and brings our attention to the core of the fruit of a cosmic event. He observes the mass, dismantles the granite and clarifies the purity of the raw pigment. Emiel Uytterhoeven uses an illusionistic force to fathom the impenetrable mass and creates an archive of mathematical structures.
His monumental garden sculptures arise with a direct carving technique, a spontaneous manual cutting with knowledge and respect for the quality of the granite. Renaissance organizes the raw matter embraced into a harmonious whole. This artist has great authenticity and belongs to the last generation of sculptors with a special knowledge to report the richness of a stone.
