Russian artist Gregory Emvy likes to think outside the box so it’s not supersizing that his latest series of product designs defies categorization by walking a fine line between painting and sculpture.
Working with an eclectic palette of marble, concrete, copper and wood, dexterously merged together in rectangular inlays-cum-reliefs, his recent work hovers between abstraction and figuration. Featuring an assortment of contrasting textures – rough vs. smooth, polished vs. brushed, warm vs. cool– colour juxtapositions and a tension between the suppleness of organic motifs and the hardness of geological or industrial sensibility, the pieces nevertheless achieve a rewarding sense of harmony.
Taking his approach one step further, Emvy has created a chimerical furniture collection by combining incongruous materials, varying transparencies and contrasting shapes. A cross between Surrealism, Constructivism and Arte Povera, Emvy’s furniture is both stark and whimsical, blurring the line between the natural and the artificial. Dividing his time between Moscow, London and Mexico, as well as being a fashion influencer, Gregory found some time to talk to Yatzer about his latest work, social media, and life in Mexico City
