Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

For this sculpture I was inspired by old temple complexes, with see throughs, stairs, corners and crumbling walls. Think of buildings of the ancient Egyptians or, for example, the Incas.
The material I used is also related to an old monument. The travertine comes from the plinth of the monument to Joannes Zwijssen (1794-1877), a Roman Catholic clergyman and later bishop, made by sculptor Toon Dupuis (1933). It once stood in Tilburg. The Latin title of this sculpture e is a reference to the language of the Catholic Church.

This sculpture is also suitable for the outdoor space, although the inlaid copper will change due to the influence of the weather.

Artist Profile

Born: 1962

Hometown: Utrecht

Based in: Utrecht

Fieke de Roij, stone sculptor, based in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

My sculptures are clear and abstract. They are created intuitively, by combining shapes and materials. While working I searche for simplicity, tension and balance. The sculptures evoke an atmosphere or association and give room for individual interpretation.
I uses a form language that is universally recognizable and appreciated worldwide. You can find my work in private collections across many countries.

Background:
After years of working with all kind of materials, in 1994 I discovered stone sculpting. From that moment my choice was made. With the start of my company ‘Werk in Steen’ in 2005, I wanted to further professionalize my working as a sculpture and create a place to convey my love for the profession.
Since 2007 I organize classes stone sculpting in my studio in Utrecht city. And also summer courses on locations in The Netherlands, Germany and France.
In 2019 I celebrate my 25 years of stone sculpting and the many years of teaching.

Education:
College of Education Utrecht, teacher training Textile and Crafts (1982-1988)
Academy for Visual Arts The Hague (1995-2000)
