RV

I bless the day that I was introduced to a humble piece of clay.

Hello and thank you for consulting my page.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Hervey. Before you wonder about my name let me explain. My parents were expecting a boy! They changed one letter. In France, where I live most of the time, my name is pronounced Ervay, hence the signature on my work are the initials RV.

Sculpture to me is a therapy. I cannot waft on about existential philosophies and the like. I just love creating beautiful objects with my hands (and soul). It's an amazing adventure .

The famous French philosopher, André Gide, once said that art is a collaboration between God and the artist.....and the least the artist has to do with it, the better. Need I say more?

When I am in my studio I am in a different world. Soft music plays, sometimes classical and sometimes a favourite singer, all depends on the piece that is evolving on my work bench. Sometimes the style of the music no longer fits the piece being born. My work is never pre-meditated. I rarely know where this adventure will lead....all I do is follow. It is not really 'me' who is creator.




I truly bless the day I was introduced to a humble piece of clay.

Vita
Born in England, brought up in South Africa, my love of art stems from a deep curiosity about life. People, animals, nature, they all hold such mystery. I am self taught, and my diplomas are all from the university of life.

RHINO
My Chrome Plated RHINO, a numbered special edition, was born through patiently following this majestic creature through the bush. He won me 1st prize for Sculpture in Cannes at the Concours des Alpes Maritime in 2014. His predecessor , DUMBO, the baby elephant, had won the same prize the previous year. This is the first time the same sculptor has won two consecutive years.

Soft curves, possibly the feminine form? Caressing this bronze has a soothing effect, like caressing a cat. My personal way of lowering my blood pressure :-)

RHINO HEAD
This life size RHINO HEAD will, hopefully, contribute, in some small way, to the protection of this amazing species. Profits from sales of my animal series to African charities such as African Wildlife Foundation, or Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage.
RV, Kunstharz, Bronze
ONE
ONE .....two people in symbiosis. When you say one, your mouth forms a ring, the same ring that is to be found at the center of this piece. A ring, symbol of eternity. ONE started life as a small granite block, then evolved into different shaded bronzes, before growing into the large (garden) sculpture that is in this picture.
RV, Kunstharz
