Fire, earth, air, water: the four elements of the cosmos that define the cycle of life. The sun scorches the earth, l

ets lakes and seas haze over and return as fertile water.

When the sculpror hews and hurts the stone, the soul is released like a phoenix.

He rises in full fantasy to descend again in stilling, uniting forms and emotion


                                          Very often art shows us what is hidden behind the things you see.

                                  The first contact with a statue, this encounter that each time is an encouter with art in general and with yourself, is worthless. 

                                  Sculptures are not complex, they exist and speak an own language. The fusion of the form, given to me by natural coincidence and the form inspired by the stone, results in a statue. Sculptures are the vehicle of energy, emotion, and beauty, hey are not this thing, they are stone, but they carry all of them.

                                   A spectator can be touched by this expressed world. This can be the source of an intense contact because it is an encounter beyond the common forms of word and image and habit.

Beelden in woorden

De kus

om elkaar heen, strak en wit
verstilde kracht
steeds dieper en hechter
gaan ze toch een eigen weg
verkennen dromen en passies
hoger en verder
om steeds terug te keren
naar de omhelzing
van het troostende wit

als ik jou zie, ben ik mooi
als jij mij ziet, ben je mooi
of is het andersom
die dwaze begoocheling
die ons niet jonger maakt
maar doet vergeten
