Item Overview

Description

Provenance

Acquired directly from the artist, Volten and Molenaar used to be close friends for many years

Notes


"Brass is Volten's favourite material, and it is clear why: it has a certain smoothness, an intimacy and warmth, but also weight, and a colour that varies depending on whether the material has a matt or high-gloss finish... Volten's brass sculptures have no curves, nothing is round or slanted, nothing is diagonal, circular or cylindrical... This world is ruled by the horizontal and the vertical" (Oxenaar, R. Work to date. In: Haaren, H. van & Oxenaar, R. André Volten. Beelden voor de eigen ruimte, beelden voor de openbare ruimte. NAi Uitgevers, 2008, p. 47).
