ILAKSID is a vivid wall sculpture celebrating the beauty of ornament. Not merely additional or destined for the background, the ornament is raised to an autonomous piece of art. The motive is a complex, geometric form, which splits up as a kaleidoscopic image. Cleary, Nick Ervinck refers to his fascination for organic structures, as can for instance be seen is his 3D prints and his work for KIWANIS Club.As in a Rorschach-stain, one can interpret this piece in different ways. ILAKSID for instance refers to an ice crystal, to complex lacework, or even to the paper cut in a lace pattern beneath a pie or pastry.
