New Organic Forms: Sculpture by Eva Lys Champagne

Our featured artist today is Eva Lys Champagne. Eva works primarily in sculpture, with her works taking on the formal aspects of scientific and biological elements.

Eva’s drawings and sculptures mirror everything from plants and animals to rock formations. The artist attempts to blend these elements together, creating new organic forms that defy categorization. Eva’s sculptures are wonderfully complex. I like the way she combines more bulbous, rounded, earthy-coloured shapes with sharp white and elongated petals, seeds and tendrils, making forms that are the best of both worlds. The arrangement of the sculptures in gallery spaces creates the feeling that the viewer is walking through a densely populated alien forest. These alien forms remind me of the work of other sculptors such as Abbie Weinberg.

The artist’s works on paper function as both a separate element of her practice and as a sketch-like glimpse into her process. I enjoy the recurring floral elements combined with geometric shapes and straight lines.
