About Edvardas Racevicius

The traditional icon carving of his native Lithuania always fascinated artist Edvardas Racevicius (born 1974 in Lithuania) because of its simple visual language and spiritual aura. At the age of 17, he formed his first sculpture made of woods using an axe. According to his statement, this enchanted the artist and today inspires his humorous and enchanted works.

Racevicius thematises the relationship of the human being with nature in his works. For this, he works with both a chainsaw and by hand. The wood, which always remains visible, is just as important to him as the figures. The dark-haired, recurring protagonist of his series "Trees and People", dressed in a white shirt and black trousers, seems to literally grow out of the tree trunk, blurring the transition between base and figure.
