Notes

His sculptures are monuments of silence whose physical presence is affected by a form of erosion he himself creates. By applying an erosive material to the patina on the bronze this texture acquires a very subtle, tactile look … This look also contributes to the mysterious atmosphere of his sculptures. Through their uncontrolled erosive character not one of the sculptures is the same …

Willy Van den Bussche

Acquired from the artist by the current owner.
