A great initiative to look forward to each year is the International Sculpture Route Biennale in Amsterdam.
Among 20 male artists participating and selected by curators Rudi Fuchs and Maarten Bertheux, Rebecca Warren is the only female artist.
Black bronze sculptures of international acclaimed artists inspire me, to think (!), about working with bronze again.
While the sculptures are the reason I am here, it is a black, 100 year old, poplar that really touches my soul.
This oldest sculpture is not manmade, but a creation of Mother Earth herself.
Standing tall in front of the Hilton hotel, she has witnessed the hotel’s construction. She saw John Lennon and Yoko Ono checking in for their Bed-In for Peace. She couldn’t help Herman Brood jumping of the roof. If you are prepared to listen, she has many stories to tell. She is one of the finest sculptures. She is a winner.
