Detail of a meditating Buddha figure in bronze-mesh surrounded by its spotlight shadows

‘TRANSFORM’ 2013

‘TRANSFORM’ 2013
Cruise Ship ‘Mein Schiff 5‘, Spa Area
Dimensions 100 cm x 60 cm x 40 cm

‘TRANSFORM’ 2013 was commissioned for the spa area of Cruise Ship ‘Mein Schiff 5‘ and is wall-mounted as a mysterious but relaxing artwork.
The calm expression of the face changes with different angles of simple spot lighting.
The Buddha sculpture is made from one sheet of bronzemesh and modelled using very own (self-made) tools. The sculpture is ’fixed’ joining each wire intersection so that the artwork is quite robust and stable.

My sculptures have no palpable substance or surface. At first glance they appear to be a metallic membrane but when you take a closer look they are not even a skin. They are in fact a delineation of surface and form, modelled and drawn in three-dimensional space.
