Talking about my work at an open studio.

Biography / CV of Ebitenyefa Baralaye

Ebitenyefa Baralaye was born in Lagos, Nigeria, spent his early childhood living in the Caribbean and later moved to the United States. In the US he discovered an early affinity for drawing that was soon supported by the admiration and study of a range of master artists from Michelangelo to Picasso. He was later introduced to sculpture making through interests in clay hand-building which eventually led to his study of ceramics at the Rhode Island School of Design and Peters Valley Crafts Center.

Ebitenyefa now lives in NYC where he has assisted in production for a number of designers and fine artists. He actively continues to produce work encompassing all forms of sculpture and media in his Long Island City art studio.

Artist Statement of Ebitenyefa Baralaye

I create objects to capture and evoke the layered immaterial elements affecting humanity, existence and personal identity. I focus on abstraction as the mode of expression in my work because of its universal diversity and potential for drawing associations of deep subjective specificity. I source and collage a range of mediums and influences directed loosely by my governing concerns and impulses. Through the techniques of sculpting, assembling and layering/blending I aim to create faithful translations, in physical form, of the arrayed output of my mental and emotional perspectives.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Brasil - Chess (Corporate Commission of an entire edition)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Although it seemed a daunting project to commission a sculpture on the internet with a tight deadline, Plamen Dimitrov in Bulgaria made it as easy as possible for me in Brazil by producing a series of little clay sketches after each email and sending photos it seemed by return. He worked round the clock and was incredibly intuitive with his understanding of what I wanted. This was despite an 8 hour time difference and having poor English as our common language. He w...
