“Twigs” (2017) – details

Fragmented and oversized, his steel sculptures place the solid material with the movement inherent in the figures’ poses and the shapes of their garments. Each of their bodies is incomplete, whether through a bisected limb or torso gaping with negative space, which makes it even more mysterious and unusual!

“Disintergrating 2” 2014

“People habitually live with a misled sense of security, the illusion that our environment or civilization is dependable and static. Often times the dangers and violence of the current world we live in interrupts and the illusion of safety is exposed.”
Regardt Van Der Meulen

The artist uses steel as the material for his sculptures since it’s usually associated with the impression of unmoving strength. Each of his steel sculpture figures creates the notion that they are incomplete, melting or being pulled apart, deconstructed by a force either from within or without.
