Eva Hild’s sculptures may resemble hugely enlarged fossils, skeleton parts or sea shells, but they never spring from a desire to illustrate a familiar organism. The intricate play of lines and cavities flows and drills through the white and black surfaces; meanwhile, the asymmetric compositions appear differently depending on the angle and light. Her sculptures have also been associated with 3D modelling and mathematics, which Hild accepts, although she has occasionally found the comparison slightly annoying, since any similarities with scientific elements or contexts relating to mechanical technology are merely superficial. The intuitive approach, the irregularity and the materiality invested in her works contribute to the earnestness of the result. It is the recklessness and the tentative process that make her craftsmanship so subtle. Moreover, the exact result can never be calculated beforehand.
