Childlike Creatures by Sabi van Hemert
Dutch artist Sabi van Hemert creates weird yet interesting sculptures that are fusion of Child and animal giving them an alien yet familiar look.
Sabi van Hemert tell’s us about her sculpture in the following text.
“ I create an image from synthetic material or clay, letting myself be led by thoughts, associations and emotions. What do I see in the shape, what sort of feeling do I get, what does it remind me of, what am I saying with this? And, is this what I want to make? Once the image is finished, I cover it either partially or entirely with a “skin” of a different material. The choice of skin depends on the image. In contrast to the spontaneity at the beginning of the work process, when I make the skin I work in a very structured manner. For weeks, with great patience and discipline, I cut, paste or prick, following self-imposed rules such as, “all forms in the same rhythm” or “all lines continue onward”.
