When I came across the work of Belgium based artist Nick Ervinck, I immediately started to think of biological masses being strung together. There’s something so organic about his work. There’s his smaller work, which look like nerve clusters being strung together in some mysterious form. Then there’s his larger pieces, like the ones you see above, which look like giant melted cheese monsters are invading your city… And I mean that in the best way possible.
A lot of different media are used by the artist such as: prints, video and digital drawings. They lead to the making of sculptural forms made of painted plaster, polyester and wood. In his digital prints and animations Nick Ervinck creates a surrealistic space by strange combinations of forms and by playing widely with volumes, proportions and colours. At least, one can say the virtual world of this artist is strange. Polymorphic, synthetic forms invade ‘seemingly’ authentic rooms, monumental buildings are detached from the ground and become living sculptures or daring combinations of ships, churches and skyscrapers float over an endless sea. This world is a fiction, constructed and deconstructed by an almighty creator. Tired of playing games by others, Nick Ervinck created his own world.
