Lives and works in Rotterdam

Collage is the starting point for EvR’s imagery. Cut-out bodyparts are composed into plantlike forms that become a grotesque theatrical set of antropomorphic growths. This way a mimetic translation of wayward and fancyful human nature comes into being. Rather than being sexually explicit, the work presents the erotic as an irrational force.
