Artist Yke Prins
Yke Prins (1961, Delft, NL) sculptures are lucid flowing forms captured in bronze. The surfaces are full of spores the signs of handling, the remains after casting of a sculpture formed from the smallest of details. Prins' art appears to enlarge a room's space, while her guarding sculptures seem to remain alert, conscious of the viewer's presence. Like many traditional Dutch artists, Prins takes inspiration from the natural world movement in the sea, the wind, and light. The artist creates an abstract poetic world where the expression of her sculpture registers the force of movement and static balance.
