About The Artwork

Box sculpture: architecture in miniature; in materials of reclaimed-antiques. (箱彫刻、アンティーク素材を使った、ミニチュア建築) Framework (soft wood) and the decorative scroll pieces (soft wood) are 18-19 century salvage with a 1:24 miniature fireplace scene, which recalls traces of memory from long ago. Dust covered; the occasional spider's web... A spot light installed glows with theatrical, crumbling elegance. (額縁と装飾的なスクロールのパネルは、18-19世紀アンティークの素材を使用。 1:24サイズのミニチュア暖炉のシーンが、過ぎ去った遠い過去の記憶の断片を呼び覚ます。付け加えられた埃や時折見かけられる蜘蛛の巣が、過ぎ去った時間を象徴している。インストールされたスポットライトが、その崩れゆくシーンのエレガンスを、浮かび上がらせる。) Mixed medium: reclaimed soft wood, paper (miniature books and vintage labels), glass (miniature bottle), ceramic (miniature jar), pyrite mineral (metallic cube on the fireplace) , etc… (ミクスト・メディウム: 再使用木材、紙(ミニチュア本とヴィンテージ・ラベル)、ガラス(ミニチュア・ボトル)、陶器(ミニチュア・ジャー)、パイライトの結晶(暖炉の上のメタリック・キューブ)等。 The light-fitting (220-240 volts) comes as a euro-plug AC adaptor, which may be converted to follow the electrical system of the country of purchase. (スポットライトのソケットは、220-240ボルト対応のユーロ型プラグ仕様です。 プラグ変換アダプターを使って、日本のソケットで安全に使用できますが、ライトの明るさが減少します。) Two secure hanging-brackets are installed on the back. (裏に壁掛用のワイヤーのための、安定した対のブラケットが付いています。)

Born in the Netherlands in 1937. His parents dealt in antiques and the family lived in an old house that inspired the artist from his earliest years on.After finishing his art studies he found himself in the world of theatre and television as a set-designer. Besides, he started to create his first 'boxes'.These were exhibited in Amsterdam, Antwerp, Brussels, Paris and New York during the ninetiesAfter he settled in France he spends most of his time and energy in changing the interior of his 18th century manor house that now reflects in many ways the three dimensional interiors of his box-sculptures.These in no way resemble doll houses. His boxes have an atmosphere of the past, theatrical crumbling elegance with a strong 'dust and spider' trend.
