By using coal as a manufacturing material, Eduard Locota is predicting a feasible future for coal, but not as one of the world’s leading combustibles.
If we analyzing the past of the material: its transformation from a plant into a rock, and currently into the fuel; we can try to predict the new and complex future of coal and similar fossil-fuel.
The artist is reinterpreting the purpose of fossil fuel, we actually go beyond recycling, towards an active transformation of the material.
The sculptural group “Abstract Isometry” has been gravitating around the theme of fragmentation, slicing of the Earth and plasticity. In the contemporary context, channeled almost exclusively on our natural resources, once abundant natural resources such as fossil fuel, water and even clean oxygen, become rare commodities.
In the current context focused on excessive and unsustainable consumerism, the 21st Century welcomes us with a Darwinian transformation for both men and nature. Evolution which leads to the development of a synthetic man living in a synthetic nature. Heavy topics as regeneration and sustainable environment are thrown into the arms of the future generations, that have not been born yet.
Thus, the artist’s creations highlight the synthesis through alternative materials used, such as: synthetic marble (resin and marble dust), synthetic resin (Plexiglass), synthetic cement (Jesmonite), charcoal, wood, and so on. His works have a powerful conceptual plasticity but also physical plasticity, a concept that can be interpreted as modern works of the 21st Century.
Every good artist should be able to draw inspiration from nature.
For “DelMare Collection”, Locota creates various representations of land and sea through his unique perspective. Artworks that became sculptures in surrealism.
From clay modeling, mold making, carving wood and stone sculpting, Eduard Locota shows his deep understanding and highly controlled skills over materials. Each piece of his work expresses a powerful message. Somehow, he has a way to demonstrate the strength of each of his work even after chiseling powerful straight volumes similar to architecture, with an outer and inner sculpture for each of his transparent works.
The material itself was born once again through his creative process.
