Sculptures

The artists exhibiting in our garden are diverse in their views, expressions and techniques. However, they all meet our image of the artist. They work passionately on an oeuvre where one thing is created from another as a natural development, they tackle their materials, they possess a high level of craftsmanship and technical skills, which makes them able to create beauty with their hands, even though that beauty can be confrontational at times. But above anything else, aside from a great feeling for aesthetics, they all possess a good dose of stubbornness and perseverance. The latter is necessary, because sculptures are often made from unwieldy, robust materials such as stone and iron and steel, that do not allow themselves to be processed without a fight. Their materials seem to have a will of their own, which can only be understood through patient study and which will only surrender once the artist lets go of part of his own will. The maker and his material then create a language of their own, where the crafting is not merely a technique, but much more an expression of ultimate loyalty to the intrinsic beauty of the material. In this way, the artists create their own worlds and a glimpse of those worlds can be seen and experienced in our garden. The garden and the works of art also form a world of their own where we allow the visitor to enter in order to wander around with respect and amazement.
