Found these this morning, I love them, there is something about the textures put on a human figure that makes it for me. My favourites have to be the scales and the urchin style spicks.

” I create images that evoke associations with people and animals. I imagine the balance between the many conflicting feelings and thoughts that a man can have. Balance between opposites as attractive / repulsive, happy / sad or fear / security. My pictures have something in them that causes you to think what to see and feel that it gives you, and then confirm again denied. Because not immediately clear what you see, there is a more complex relationship between spectator and image. The working process is a personal adventure. It starts with a vague idea that once I started going more and more shape. For example, from plastic or ceramic form a picture in which I myself guided by thoughts, emotions and associations. What I see in the form, what a feeling to me, which makes me think, what am I saying this? And therefore I want to make? The resulting image I give all or part of a ’skin’ of a different material. The choice of the skin is a reaction to the previously created image. And unlike the spontaneity at the outset of the work, I’m very structured to work when I make the skin. I’m weeks with patience and discipline to cut, paste or stick with self-imposed rules as: “any form in the same rhythm,” or “all lines run through. But due to the precision and the chosen materials get my work an alienating, sensual, tough and fragile. ” – Sabi Van Hemert
