The artistic production of the Isareli artist Eyal Gever passes through a complex process of creation. First, Gever creates 3d simulations of very specific situations, which he then translates into sculptural moments. Finally, these pieces are transformed into digital prints. The 3 steps of the process are necessary to capture sublime moments that show the collision of radically opposed concepts.

Gever seeks to represent moments that normally "fill a person with amazement, awe, terror, stupor and silence" that are, at the same time, manifestations of pure beauty. His artworks search for the perfect visual interpretation of moments and things that we not visible in order to reveal "the boundaries of time".

To capture the catastrophic situations that his pieces represent, Gever uses 3D physical simulation technologies and software that he has developed. Through a methodical process, he simulates events he creates and translates their physical manifestations into works of art.

In some of his sculptures, Gever manages to recreate moments where motion and rest coexist, showing his interest for the destructive impact taking place in the environment. The uncontrollable and extreme are the main sources for his work, serving as a reminder of the fragility of life. His artistic practice oscillates between opposite poles, finding beauty hidden in strange places.
