About "Inner Play"
The sculpture has a fascination with the inner world of the child. The little boy, totally immersed in playing with a wooden aeroplane, was based on the sculptor's son Leighton, at the age of 5
"My sculptures feed off the nostalgia of innocent times, lost in thought or activity. Sometimes they even embody the thoughts or pictures born in a moment but every piece has meaning. To me, at least, they speak.
Frans Boekkooi was introduced to sculpture at the age of fourteen and won his first major sculpture award (ATKV) at sixteen. He received the ‘Best on Show’ Award at the 2000 EPSAC Annual Exhibition.

Frans is a sought-after commissioned artist who works from ideas and / or photographs to the client’s specifications and achieves an astounding likeness to the subject. Among his clients are architects, interior designers, corporate buyers and art lovers who want an exclusive and personal work of art. He lives in Nieu Bethesda, a small village in the Karoo, South Africa.
