Nick Ervink's work consists of large installations, handmade and 3D printed sculptures, ceramics, prints, drawings, light boxes and animated films. As diverse as this art production may be, above all, he remains fascinated by the "negative space" as he discovered it with classical sculptors such as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. The finding that a "hole" in matter is such a young idea will probably haunt him for the rest of his life. As a child of his time, he plays a varying game between the physical and virtual world, using both classic and new craftsmanship (computers, 3D printing and milling). From here he explores in his own unique way classical themes such as man , plants, masks and animals, always starting from an (art) historical background that he cuts with contemporary pop and sci-fi culture.
He has received several prizes. His work has been acquired by art collectors around the world and shown in solo and group exhibitions in Europe and beyond. Ervinck took his first steps with group exhibitions in Shanghai, Tokyo, Flagstaff and New York.
