Kristin H. Eyfells 
Receptualism brings to light new conceptions of "being" and breathes new life into the verb to be.

Receptual Art no. 9, bronze, 23.5 x 32.5 x 19 inches

In 2003 Johann Eyfells approached Modern Art Foundry to cast nine sculptures. The work was created by his wife Kristin H. Eyfells who had passed away in 2002 and Johann wanted to realize her and his desire to cast these works in bronze. Born in Iceland, Kristin was a successful entrepreneur at the age of twenty-one. Early in her career she met Johann, who is an architect and sculptor, and four years later they married and moved to the east coast of the United States. Kristin attended Hofstra University and inspired by her husband's dedication to the arts, she signed up for a sculpture class. Following a move to Gainesville, Florida, she continued her studies at the University of Florida. She began to exhibit in 1962 and has been featured in over one hundred exhibitions in the United States and Europe. Both Johann and Kristin's sculpture explore thoughts on Receptualism.
