Presenting Benjamin Volckaerts
I like to display abstract and figurative forms. To arrive at these specific forms, I start with my collected collages and drawings.
I see my work more as a process of sculpturing that's never finished and is always in motion. There is always room to integrate new elements into my works.
I find inspiration in the Korean culture, where my roots are located. Beautiful striking colours can be found anywhere in South-Korea. By combining these colours with the natural colour of clay, I look for fascinating harmonic contrasts.
Furthermore, the sculpture is used as a support, which means that the sculpture itself will be used as pedestal
Research on form, colour, material, content, the viewer's perception and handling details, remain important aspects to make all combinations interesting.
