Frans Boekkooi - "Nina"
W: 230mm x H: 570mm x D: 250mm
This work is unframed
The artist's fascination with a memory of youth, a second in time, is captured. Nina is skipping with only one toe on the ground _ the entire sculpture is suspended in time. Edition of 14
"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 [0x1] but every piece has meaning. To me, at least, they speak.[0x1]
