Following on from last Autumn’s exhibition events in Monaco ‘TRANSFORM’ is a selected solo exhibition for La Chèvre d'Or which includes both figurative and abstract sculpture presented in outdoor settings on the mountain side high up above the Côte d’Azur.

His hand worked wire mesh sculptures which on their own are stunningly forceful but then the added beauty of them when lit, as they throw shadows on the walls, make them spectacular.” Gillian Catto.

Image: ‘Sinuu’, 2012. A double sculpture, female front and male back torso, suspended, in black finished steel-mesh. Currently located at
Gallery Van Loon and Simons is showing my work.
Being an important centre of the avant-garde art in Northern Europe, Amsterdam has also another, much older and richer tradition – that of realism. Dutch painters were famous since Renaissance through the 18, 19 and 20 century. In the middle of the 20c., a movement called magic realism contributed with important figurative paintings depicting figurative scenes in a fantastic, mysterious scenery.
