Adje Martens (B)

Metal, recuperation, stone, Wood ... creativity, imagination

The ideas are expressed in a series of works of art in wood, metal and stone, which give rise to new ideas


Delia Bremer, Hoogeveensche Courant (adapted):
"With a background in music, theatre, and carpentry, Adje Martens is a visual storyteller, with an abundance of fantasy and humour. He uses a multitude of materials; steel, wood, and stones, and often mixing this with recuperated 'waste'. And - Each sculpture receives a poem! "

Process:
Adje Martens converts an idea into a series of images. Working out the series in turn leads to new ideas and a chain reaction of realizations.
He is not limited by materials or techniques, but only by the size of his garden ... never enough space ...

Copper

Beating, folding, bending and welding are my techniques.The infernal noise is for me accompanying music to the birth of some piece of art


Talent from Kauliller soil (Northern Belgian Limburg)

As a youngster, he started cutting wood in his spare time. With hammer and chisel he created life in a wooden plank or beam. Later, he began to experiment with materials such as iron, aluminium and copper.

Now he has become a self-made metal artist. Welding different pieces together to form an expressive object is one of his favourite pastimes. Red copper is his favourite material.
Apart from his art pieces, he also works on order. Thus, copper work has become a full-time occupation.

Ann Geirnaerdt (B)

Lost-wax casting technique, bronze

Bronze figures that show strength but also vulnerability


Burkina Faso:
Ann Geirnaerdt attributes her present style of working with bronze to a three year stay in Burkina Faso (West Africa), where she was able to experiment full-time with the lost-wax casting technique using bronze.

Ann Geirnaerdt:
Each of my sculptures tells its own story, starting from personal experiences and emotions that I want to give the place they deserve. In this way, my works show, in a very rewarding way, strength but also vulnerability.

Themes:
Ann Geirnaerdt deals through her works with the themes of man who is constantly "searching", who needs closeness, security, but at the same time wants to maintain his own strength. The man who longs for a certain harmony and wants to live life to the full, sometimes vulnerable, sometimes strong, always looking for his cosy nest, which he also prefers to share with others.

Material:
What makes her work special is the inspiration coming from natural materials. In the construction of her works she regularly uses natural materials such as bark, branches, plants, and leaves, which inspire her enormously due to their movement and structure. These materials leave an imprint which she gratefully takes up and shapes.

Glass

If an image stands out between so many visual impressions, something has happened


Annemarie van Uden:
"Every day I walk through my imagination and marvel.
These many wanderings are what feed my desire to make images.
Amazement, curiosity, and playfulness are very important to me.
You look and feel something, you are touched by the material, the form - the expression.
If an image stands out between so much visual material, something has happened."

Bettina Silverio (B)

Recuperated material

Infuse paintings with sculptural elements created with recuperated material


Bettina Silverio:
As an Environmental Science major, she now takes her experimentation over to her studio where she plays with materials and techniques, creating pieces that straddle painting, woodworking and metal sculpture.
She is largely self-taught, and over the years her works have evolved from traditional 2D paintings into art pieces that infuse painting with sculptural 3D elements.
She's an intuitive artist and years of struggle with her bipolar condition enhanced this.

Subjects:
Embracing sustainable art in 2019, Bettina Silverio recycles materials to create her pieces, in hopes her works will call attention to the environmental crises and encourage others to become part of the solution.

Awards:
In 2013 Bettina Silverio was a finalist in the GLOBE Imaginart nationwide art competition.
In 2020, she was selected by a jury for the UN75 Global Conversation 2020 2nd Round exhibit.
In 2021 one of her works was selected by a jury to be featured in The Social Art Award 2021 Book, launched by the Institute for Art and Innovation, Berlin.

Hendrike Huijsmans (B)

Glass, metal and polyester

Abstract, organic and colourful monumental structures by combining glass, metal and polyester


Design:
The work of Hendrike Huijsmans is characterised by its open character, bright colours and clear, sleek but flowing lines. These radiate movement and liveliness.

Abstract but organic:
. Hendrike Huijsmans likes to make abstract sculptures. Free organic structures that seem to grow and find their way fascinate her immensely.
The works are almost always colourful , monumental and have a positive aura.

Combining materials:
. Hendrike Huijsmans likes to work with steel, glass and polyester and combinations thereof. The possibilities of shape and colour of these materials are almost unlimited. They are therefore very suitable for creating the free flowing sculptures that she wishes to show.

Hermien Buytendijk (B)

Ceramic

Life-size, humoristic sculptures in earth tones resemble circus performers who wonder why the spectators are looking at them


Hermien Buytendijk:
. The sculptures are often made from an evolving sketch but change during the creation of the sculpture. It is also possible that they are modelled after a word or a title. Also the naming is often the result of a game of question and answer with the sculpture. In this way, many crazy word combinations have arisen and the resulting sculptures are always different and unique.

Stripes of clays are used to create a hollow sculpture (stoneware or porcelain) They are kneaded together and dented. Often, Hermien Buytendijk is working simultaneously with several sculptures in different stages of development.
They are painted with colour slips and scratched in, then they are baked in the oven at 900 degrees. Then they are rubbed with dyes from metal powders and glazed and fired at a minimum of 1200 degrees. This is often followed by a firing at 800 degrees to burn off some gold.

Hermien Buytendijk for Gallery 'T':
Hermien artfully puts life into perspective with ceramic sculptures that subtly move between dream and reality.

Her sculptures often do something that is not quite possible, they seem to just escape reality but give a sharp impression of it. With humour and double meanings, she creates creatures that everyone will recognise with a smile. Human and animal figures merge with musical instruments and objects to original unique pieces and each object gets its own name.

The subjects are created from a fantasy taken from life, all different and surprising.
The sculptures are usually placed on wooden or stone pedestals which are decorated to match.
The work has the colours of the earth with here and there a touch of gold and graphic elements.

Bronze, resin

Reaching for the unattainable emotion


Jean-Luc Absil creates his sculptures in clay and wax and the casts are in bronze and resin.

Jean-Luc Absil has an eye for details. He looks constantly for the elegance, the emotion that the female body evokes by its restraint or by its provocation.
The natural sensuality of the woman he depicts leads the viewer to take a serene look at her nudity.

By magnifying, even deifying the woman, he creates the 'Femme Sacré'.
Jean-Luc Absil tries to immortalise the overall image of the Female Goddess.

Joël Sadaune (B)

Metal, scrap

Giving new life to recycled materials and objects to reveal landscapes and scenes of life


Galeries Barissardo & Au 45 (Isabelle and Hervé Venet)(adapted and extended):
Trained as an architect and with experience as an exhibition scenographer, Joël Sadaune expresses himself through pictorial works featuring virtual and semi-abstract spaces, borrowed and transformed from our daily life, such as urban or virtual networks, or industrial sites.
With spare parts, he invents real machinery so necessary in our daily life.

From painting to sculpture, Joël Sadaune creates universes with an industrial atmosphere, against a background of decorations rich in details: markings, symbols, messages, traces, tears ... he likes to use the vocabulary linked to packaging: arrows, numbers, barcodes, stencil inscriptions ... which are all representations to allow him to limit his works and leave the abstract, creative universe.

His creation sounds like an invitation to explore, dissect, decipher and travel to the borders of a fantastic, modern world.
With Joël Sadaune, nothing is arbitrarily created! The originality of his artwork is in fact the result of research work, the artist likes to observe, describe and understand the world he then reinterprets, expresses in his artworks.

Joël Sadaune expose from Friday 01 July 2022.

Lebuïn D'Haese (B)

Bronze, ceramic

Only one subject: the human being


Vision:
Lebuïn communicates through his work with the audience, which gets an insight into his ideas and opinion. Being an artist is not free obligation for him. Art for art's sake is not his concern. He is a committed artist with only one subject: the human being. (Gui Kestens)

Luc Clerinx:
Lebuïn D’Haese watches ‘la comédie humaine” slightly ironically, deeply moved he watches ‘humanity and its woes’. What he sees and how he sees these things is brought to life in his statues.
Always thinking visually, acting visually. Frugal forms, the omission of excessive details, and the suppression of subjective emotions steer the dramatic poignancy in these statues in the right direction.

Frank De Vos:
Always thinking visually, acting visually. Frugal forms, the omission of excessive details, and the suppression of subjective emotions steer the dramatic poignancy in these statues in the right direction.

Bronze

Bronze 'branches' show women full of elegance, movement and expression. The lines of the artwork express the emotion found in faces


The bronze women (?) sculptures of Loes Knoben show expression, movement and tension.

Loes Knoben is always looking for wood, branches and bark, weathered by wind and weather. In them she searches for strength, rhythm and balance. It starts a discovery voyage to new art works.
The used natural materials leave their mark on her sculptures. The wooden twigs become arms and legs.

The art of Loes Knoben reflects her view on life, her talent to observe people, fathom their feelings and translate them into beautiful expressive bronzes.

Luk Luts (B)

Stone - Theme: petrified messages & encapsulated women

Free the petrified messages or statues of women from their old stone shells


With an innate awareness of the beauty of nature, Luk Luts "gets to the bottom" of the various types of stone.

He uses as well Mergel-sandstone, as Diestianian iron-sandstone, French stones, Belgian and Irish bluestone, the beautiful but delicate Noir de Mazy, the unique Italian marble 'Bianco Statuario' and the colourful Zimbabwean Opaal and Springstone.

To clarify the fossilised message from the "in print" in the stone mass or to liberate female statues from their centuries-old stone husk is his obsession.

Luk Luts evolved from a school-teacher to a stone-teacher. Not only because he understands and feels the stone better and better, but also because he shows us in his personal style what he sees in a stone. Once you have felt his work, you will always recognise it.

Glass

Wandering in a wonder world


During - and after a career as a graphic designer and product developer, Marc Hadermann devoted himself to the visual arts. The last decade, he mainly worked as a glass artist.
He is inspired by nature and images in the world around him. Wandering around, he collects images, looking like an astonished child with strange perceptions.
Fascinated by 'light' and 'transparancy' he is giving the spectator an opportunity to observe the world through his eyes.
His art , paintings or glass installations, are always pure, without rules, honest, straight and with no compromises.

Bronze

Create to express my observations or emotions


Marie Thys:
Having always had a passion for animals and their behavior, they became finally her favorite topic. The biggest part of her work is devoted to observing them and looking for their expressions, their movements, and their fragility.
Each of all her sculptures is realized using the technique she thinks is most appropriate for the animal, either wax, plaster, or clay. Then the piece is molded and cast by the process of lost wax, to finally end up with this noble material that is bronze.

Marije Gies:
I have always loved working with colours, and with glass because the interaction with light adds a whole new dimension, constantly changing and making the most beautiful atmospheres.

Works:
Marije Gies uses different techniques, such as stained glass, tiffany, stained glass, glass fusing, slumping and casting.
Besides her own art, she does commissioned works, such as stained-glass windows, restoration, glass art and workshops.

Patrick Van Tilborgh (B)

Glass

Glass is his ultimate source of inspiration. The creations are sometimes rough and simple in form, sometimes stylistic, but often colourful and playful with a typical touch of character


For a quarter of a century Patrick Van Tilborgh is already infected by the glass microbe. After a technical training, he began to experiment with glass. He followed a seven-year glass course at the IKA (Instituut voor Kunst en Ambachten) in Mechelen under the direction of Koen Vanderstukken and Miloslava Svobodova. He has his own glass studio and a mobile glass studio to realise his own creations and organise glass demonstrations, events and workshops. Patrick has an inner urge to work with glass in an uninhibited way. Glass intrigues him because it results always in such a complex adventure. It always provides new experimental and artistic challenges. Glass is his ultimate source of inspiration to create new objects every time. The passion of this glass artist is clearly reflected in his works of art. Sometimes they are rough and simple in form, sometimes rather stylistic, but often also colourful and playful with a typical touch of character, typical for Patrick Van Tilborgh.

Roland Menten (B)

Composite

Snails, frogs, flowers, mushrooms are endlessly combined, but always surprising, humorous and perfectly executed


The Snail

The artistic creations of Roland Menten show always a humorous note that is often in contradiction or gives an unexpected view on our stressed and perfectionist society. He builds up an entire oeuvre on and around snails, frogs, leaves, mushrooms, ... In short, nature. In his work, he gives snails a place of honour.

The beauty of Roland Menten's works is that they grow along with nature.

On the one hand, through the use of polished and rough surfaces, the lichens become spectators and at the same time they take a part in the story told by the artwork.

On the other hand, through the alternating use of colours, the works conquer their place in nature, which softens their dominance by incorporating the sculpture into the life of the vegetation.

The works of art by Roland Menten feel at home both in a modern design and in a classical interior, in an austere French garden as well as in natural vegetation, but they always elicit a smile :-)

Toni Kanwa Adikusumah (B)

Bronze, metal, wood. Theme: Ritual and spiritual art

Creating passages, opening the mind, resulting in spiritual and ritual objects in wood and bronze


Luc Schreiden (adapted):
The originality of the works of Toni Kanwa Adikusumah lies in the alliance between the primitive arts and contemporary art, between the depth of the East and the creative freedom of the West. The synthesis he achieves sublimates dualities.

Influences:
Toni Kanwa Adikusumah was born in Java, Indonesia. The first part of his life he was immersed in the heart of several indigenous tribes where culture and ritual arts were still a matter of life and a necessity for humans. His knowledge of ancestral techniques and his spiritual roots are exceptional. As a graduate of the Bandung Institute of Technology, he was for more than fifteen years an expert in tribal art for Sotheby's and Christie's in Jakarta and Bali.

Recently:
Since the 2000s, Toni Kanwa Adikusumah has been travelling the world, notably allowing himself to be touched by the influences of the European art scene.
The artist presents at ‘The Enchanted Garden’ a series of wooden sculptures and bronze creations revealing the flow of vital energy resulting from his unusual path and the duality between East and West.

Wood

The sculpture has to be as if it was the only possibility for this piece of wood


Will Schropp:
Lines, groves, the ribbing and the character of the wood play a big part in my sculptures. Wood has a lot of possibilities, but even more impossibilities, between them I create my sculptures.

'Life' and the eternal dream of 'Flying' are subjects of my sculptures. When I carve I am conscious of the nature, I see my work as a synthesis between design and nature. I finish my sculptures in such a way that people are prompted to touch them. Wood shows history and trees played a role in mythology. If possible I use those elements.

Woodstock chimes (B)

Aluminium with various finishes, wood, metal

Musically tuned, affordable, high quality chimes that enhance well-being through beautiful sights and sounds


Garry Kvistad:
As a music student in the 1970s, Woodstock Chimes' founder, Garry Kvistad, became fascinated by ancient scales that could not be played on modern instruments, so he decided to build a metallophone (a xylophone-like instrument with metal bars) on which he could play the ancient scale of Olympos, a Greek flute player from the 7th century B.C.. Being an ecologically minded recent college graduate on a tight budget, Garry found the materials for his metallophone at a landfill, it was made from the aluminum tubes of a discarded lawn chair! Garry's metallophone experiment was so successful, he had the idea to cut and tune aluminum tubes to create windchimes, and Woodstock Chimes was born!
