Item description for Guido Geelen by Cornel Bierens, Paul Hefting, Guido Geelen & Jan-Hein Sassen...
Guido Geelen occupies a prominent place in the world of Dutch sculpture with his free and idiosyncratic approach to working with ceramics, bronze, and aluminum. During the 1980s, Geelen achieved a conceptual breakthrough by producing three-dimensional fired clay pieces that referred haphazardly to the traditional and modern while also invoking the tradition of ceramics itself. In the mid-90s Geelen began working in bronze, and later aluminum, casting and assembling vacuum cleaners, urinals and other everyday objects, and later cows and pigs. The runners, which are normally destroyed after the casting process, were left intact, becoming an integral part of the sculpture itself--giving his work an organic and process-oriented aura. "Guido Geelen" provides a complete overview of Geelen's work, and his development as an artist, from 1986 until the present day.
