MICHAEL ENN SIRVET
Michael Enn Sirvet’s work explores the concept of structure through physical abstractions of solidity, stability, permanence and transition. He creates naturally inspired forms that are antithetical to the concept of solidity, subverting the concept of stability through a process of imparting and embracing negative space.
Michael’s sculptures are paradoxical in regard to the concept of solidity and sturdiness. He deconstructs, and in many ways destroy forms to ‘open them up’, lighten, and enlighten them. The solid shapes Michael creates are his canvases, and the brush strokes are the holes and gaps he places within those rigid canvases, as well as the light projected through and the shadows created by them.
