About The Artwork

"Flight" is a contemporary sculpture in metal, representing a flock of birds around a golden sun. "Flying Home" is part of the Migration series I have been exploring extensively . I made several sculptures related to birds (both in clay and in in metal) and a mural at the Homeless Shelter in Des Moines CISS, based on the poem of Emily Dickinson “Hope is the thing with feathers”. I have a strong admiration for birds, for their freedom of movement, for their ability to see the world from different perspectives, their ability to adapt to the environment. I love the change of the seasons and with it, the migration of birds each year – flying away to warmer places, traveling great distances above oceans. There is something very powerful in the image of a flock of birds flying together, hundreds, thousands of individuals a mass of birds, taking over the sky, like a graceful performance, a ballet creating this wonderful pattern in the sky. taking over the silence with their sound. It is not only the journey of birds: it is also about the seasons and the passage of time, the journey of people, and my own journey, as my husband and I became an American ciitizen recently and have been reflecting about my own journey and migration . It is poetry, melancholy... It can be placed inside or outside and will add character to any space. Freestanding.

The daughter of sculptor Paul DeBruyne, her childhood home was a museum of artifacts spanning the globe from African masks to remnants of Gothic cathedrals. And so developed a love for meaningful and beautiful things. She studied Art History and Archeology at the University of Ghent. It became her passion. Born in Belgium to a family of artists, Hilde DeBruyne possesses the innate ability to transform clay into timeless works of art. The daughter of sculptor Paul DeBruyne, her childhood home was a museum of artifacts spanning the globe from African masks to remnants of Gothic cathedrals. And so developed a love for meaningful and beautiful things. She studied Art History and Archeology at the University of Ghent. It became her passion. Her rather abstract works reflect nature and the authenticity of the cycle of life. Fragments of the feminine form emerge inspired by the simple and organic features of rock formations, pebbles, and weathered wood. The essence of her work is felt in the touch and texture. Layers of slip, grog and clay with embedded marks, careless scratches and prominent lines adorn the exterior. Often there is a sharp contrast between smooth and rough surfaces, open and closed forms, perfection and imperfection celebrating the weathering of time. Her artwork has been in public and private collections and international exhibits. She also designs artwork to be executed in metal or bronze. www.hildedebruyne.com artvessel@aol.com 515.710-7982
