Introduction

  Beelden

 
Nature in it's purity, that's what fascinates me. I love the volume, the movement, the texture and the natural quality of stone. In stone of all different kinds, I find unlimited possibilities to express my meanings. I prefer abstract language. My ultimate goal is a sculpture. It has an immense expression with a great sense of freedom.
With their strong and subtle presence, abstract sculptures are a surprising element in a realistic environment. A sublimized accent in a concrete world of tables, chairs, vases and living creatures.
For more than 30 years I am making sculptures of natural stone. I have studied Dutch laguage and literature, combined with art history and aesthetics. I love the freedom of investigation, the sculptures are the result of characterful research and endless experimentation. When I experience that the sculpture fits in a big trail of authentic forms, loose of history, culture and background, I am satisfied. Happy and free for my next endeavour.
