The surge of life drive embedded in everyday objects is a constant in Edgard de Souza’s oeuvre and becomes evident in the series of sculpted wooden spoons the artist has been developing. These apparently trivial objects, now endowed with impulses and desires, were meticulously sculpted from rare wood logs of mahogany. In Colher lambe colher / Spoon licks spoon, the wood comes to life through human features, and as a couple, the two spoons serve each other voluptuously.
