In Evolution, groups of figures are intertwined to emphasise the softness and curves of the female form while their composition opens up a dialogue around physical and emotional engagement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ahuva believes each stone or piece of raw material carries a ‘story’ contained within its dense shell - she only need coax it out with her chisel. “I ask for the colours and kilos and nothing else. Whatever I get sent, there’ll be a story there. Even when it goes wrong, I’ll go back later and find it there, somewhere.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ahuva Zeloof’s work is characterised by smooth curves and folds that have a sensual, tactile element. In Evolution, a couple are fused together, their bodies hot with emotion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“There is a freedom that you feel when you practice yoga - the body is serene, but there is also movement. The female figure is incredibly versatile and endless in action.” ~ Ahuva Zeloof

Ahuva moved to London in 1972 with her young family. With a keen interest and appreciation for art and design she immersed herself in what London had to offer whilst bringing up her young children. During the 1980s she started to practise and teach yoga, developing a deeper awareness and connection to the movement of the human body. 
In the 1990s Ahuva started to explore her own interest in art and form, taking short courses in sculpture. Experimenting with different mediums she experienced an instant synergy with stone, carving out figures and faces from organic shapes. Ahuva’s style was characterised by smooth curves and folds that had a sensual, tactile element and which brought facets of the human experience into sharp relief. Some areas of the stone were filed until they were perfectly smooth, others parts were left rough and raw. #ahuvazeloof ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As Ahuva began to articulate a deeper relationship with sculpture, her focus was drawn to the energetic dynamic that was created as the images started to emerge from the stone. This perspective offered a platform for Ahuva to experiment with the point of completion; to play with the fine line between what the artist carves out of the stone and what is already there.
