About The Artwork

The title of this piece is: "create or die !" It is about the need to create and shows how important it is to Menno to be inspired and to create. "Life is not worth living if one can not be creative" is what this piece tells the viewer. But the message should be taken with a grain of salt because there also a lot of humour in Menno's work. Menno took a phtograph of a skull and one of a brush and made a photomontage using these two images. Then he made a graphic black and white "translation" using ilustrator. A laser cutter then cut the design out of wood and engraved the black parts. A mold was then made and eventually it was cast in bronze and hand sanded and polished. Menno is operating on the cutting edge of art and design; two- and threedimensional; flat and spatial; serious and humorous. For this piece old techniques were used such as bronze casting and hand sanding and polishing as well as new techniques such as laser cutting and engraving. Limited edition of 10
