Ricardo van Eyk's artistic practice has been shaped by a fascination towards surfaces of built environments, and how they bear traces of human presence, the passage of time, and signs of decay. These elements provide recurring motifs, materials and images in van Eyk’s body of work: the artist is interested in the way the man-made world is part of an ever-changing process, in which different intentions collide and continually create meaningful situations. An example is the juxtaposition of the glass facades of newly built office buildings with temporary scaffolding, inexpensive wooden fences covered with commercial photography, and graffiti. These temporary phases, usually looked over, can offer a glimpse into the way we relate to our own surroundings.
