Cecil Kemperink

Hometown: Almelo

Based in: Den Burg

 

"As a curious and sensitive child/teenager I followed many art and dance classes. After one year at the fashion academy, I switched to visual arts, where the love to explore different materials was encouraged. After my graduation I started with wheel throwing and that was the beginning of a deep understanding and eagerness to ‘talk’ with clay. My sculptures are connections between my various passions: textile, clay, dance, fashion and sculpture. I love to explores space and play with rhythm, shape/form, movement, energy and sound. My work is telling you a story. Listen, see, feel and experience what happens when the sculptures move and enjoy the moment".
