I create sculptures out of coloured nylon stockings, sometimes in combination with other materials like wood, fur and animal bones.
I sew the nylon stockings in multiple layers tightly around a scaffolding and fill them with foam rubber. The stretching and layering thus results in transparent multicoloured patterns.
In parallel I make use of thin strips of iron and weld sculptures out of them to which I give a colourfully finished but hard and rough surface.
Both kinds of sculptures bring creatures to mind that tell a bit about what is going on under their skin, something that, here and there, offers a glimpse of deeper layers but ultimately hides the soul beneath.
