About Hein Kocken

Opposites control my life.
As a monumental sculptor I literally need to bend the material to my will,
whereas in my two-dimensional work I can express myself without restraint.
Meanwhile, the non-figurative aspect of my artwork is under discussion.
It has become a part of the figuration.
The dominating principle here is “Less is more”.
