Eva Hild (b. 1966) is a Swedish sculptor whose ethereal ceramic sculptures have gained her international recognition. Considered Sweden’s most eminent contemporary sculptor, she established this reputation through her oeuvre of small to medium-sized clay sculptures, as well as her large-scale, site-specific metal ones. No matter the scale, Hild’s organic structures emote a sense of movement, light, and air. Interested in the dualism of negative and positive space, her forms appear delicate yet arresting and strong. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including the Visual Art Fund grant, Special Prize at the World Ceramic Biennale, Korea, and the Sten A. Olsson Fund for Science and Culture. In 2017 she was awarded the Prince Eugen Medal in recognition of outstanding artistic achievements, in which she was given the award by the King and Queen of Sweden. Her work can be found in public and private collections including the Museum of Arts and Design (New York), the Museum of Modern Ceramic Art (Japan), the Museum of Contemporary Ceramics (Shanghai), the Mint Museum (North Carolina), the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design (Oslo), the National Museum (Stockholm), and the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston). Hild’s career in the U.S. began with her first exhibition at Nancy Margolis Gallery in 2005. Each successive exhibition showed the potential of this dynamic artist, as predicted by New York Times art critic, Roberta Smith, to become the next art star.
