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.

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.

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.

Hermien Buytendijk (B)


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.

Jean-Luc Absil (B)

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.

Lebuïn D'Haese (B)

Bronze, ceramic

Only one subject: the human being

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 DÂ’Haese watches ‘la comédie humaine” slightly ironically, deeply moved he watches ‘humanity and its woesÂ’. 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:

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.

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.

Roland Menten (B)


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 :-)

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!
