The stimuli of an image or object creates a visceral and personal experience. Each viewer’s visual memory bank plays a part in how they react emotionally and intellectually to an artwork. The title of the show is a celebration of the notion that an artwork is of material, seen by the viewer through light entering their eye and having in turn the material of their brain chemistry process the information. With this in mind Eifion Sven-Myer distorts recognisable forms in order to create unusual visual concoctions to tease out unexpected reactions. Fascinated by breaking down imagery and seeing what sort of emotional reactions can be induced as a result.

Most of the artworks in the show have been worked on for long periods of time, often being left for months at a time, then re-worked/taken apart and re-assembled into a different configuration.

In Sven-Myer’s opinion, by distorting an image/object enough on one level, yet balancing it with a recognisable form takes the mind into a nebulous space of contemplation. Creating an inward sensation that pure representation or unadulterated abstraction cannot achieve. To further augment this feeling he combines mediums; painting with sculpture, animation and film -playing with preconceptions of what for instance a traditionally stretched canvas painting is or can be.

Mae ysgogiadau llun neu gwrthrych yn creu profiad perfeddol a phersonol. Mae banc cof gweledol pob gwyliwr yn chwarae rhan yn sut meant yn ymateb yn emosiynol ac yn ddeallusol i ddarn o waith celf. Mae teitl y sioe yn ddathliad o syniad fod gwaith celf o ddefnydd, sy’n cael ei weld gan wyliwr trwy golau yn treiddio i mewn i’r llygad ac yn ei dro mae cemegion yr ymennydd yn prosesu y wybodaeth. Gyda hyn mewn golwg mae Eifion Sven-Myer yn ystumio ffurfiau adnabyddus i greu cymysgedd gweledol anarferol i weld ymatebion annisgwyl.

Mae gwaith ar rhan fwyaf o’r gwaith celf yn hir dymor, yn aml yn cael ei adael yn segur am fisoedd, yna’n cael ei ddatgymalu neu ail-wneud mewn ffurf gwahanol.

Yn ol Sven-Myer, trwy ystumio delwedd/ gwrthrych ar un lefel, ond ei gydbwyso gyda ffurf adnabyddus, mae’n cymeyd y meddwl i ofod nifylaidd o arsylliad.,gan greu teimlad mewnol na all cynrychioliad neu haniaethiad pur ei gyflawni. Mae Sven –Myer yn cyfuno paentio å cerflunio, animaeiddiad å ffilm, gan chwarae gyda canfyddiad o beth ‘all canfas traddodiadol fod.
