Back from Bengel (Antwerp)

Destination ‘Mandelstein'

I have written about the possibility of getting a “commercialistical” gemstone overdose when you visit Idar-Oberstein. As an antidote I have been searching stones myself. It is some kind of going back to one’s roots: I still feel the same excitement when finding a nice stone as when I did when I was a kid. It didn’t matter whether it was on a trip to Cap-Blanc-Nez or Chaumont-le-Bois. It could just as well happen when I was hammering up the rubble that was left over from my father’s sculptures.

Primary Colors

Mijn werk draagt als overkoepelende titel ‘Primary Colours’. Het bestaat uit drie kaders/kisten met elk drie broches. Ik zie het geheel als een drieluik maar ik zie ook elk kader apart als eens zelfstandig werk of kleurstudie en ik zie ook elke broche op zich als een op zichzelf staande, draagbare creatie.
