Another work that caught my eye at the festival in Unkel were the bronze sculptures from Rob van den Broek. As he states on his website , he most definitely has his own style and technology. His art is also very diverse. Rob van den Broek is a Dutch artist.
In the approximately 35 years that I work as a caster in bronze, I’ve seen a lot of art works passing by. So, to make something totally new is actually impossible. However with my work I do try to distinguish from everything that I have already seen by experimenting with the cast bronze technology.
First I make my sculptures completely in wax. When finished I cut out parts of it, which create a new concept where the original form becomes the background form. Because I master cast bronze engineering I’m able to seek the edge of possibilities of its technology and freely experiment with it.
