Adriaan Diedericks2

‘Travelling Body (After Aegeus)’ by Adriaan Diedericks, mixed media (31cm x 55cm x 19cm).

The Gallery at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate, Franschhoek, is proud to present an exhibition entitled ‘as is, so was’ by Adriaan Diedericks opening on Saturday, 14 February 2015, at 11h00.

Artist statement:

The diverse landscapes of my youth are portrayed within my sculptures in terms of both content and technique. Drawings form the basis for three-dimensional works in which I try to manipulate scale and material. This is clearly reflected in the Arte Povera method: the use of old wood, waste and plastic, which I later cast in bronze. 

The body is a symbol of power, as well as of inherent human frailty, stands as a central theme in my work and corresponds with my exploration into identity, masculinity and heroism. 

– Adriaan Diedericks January 2015
