Love

Although made in one piece, there are clearly two entities. They embrace each other tenderly.

Nimrud

Was the second capital of the Assyrian Empire from 850 BC. Not far from Mosul in Iraq. ISIS destroyed the old site because pre-Islamic art is considered to be pagan.

The Beginning

There was once the primal stone from which everything arose. It carried perfection but didn't want to become perfect.

Ode to red wine

The whole thing is reversed: the background is red, the drops of red wine are white. The glass at the top is half full and not red either.

22.03.2016

The terrorist attacks at the airport of Brussels and in the subway, were a hard shock to Belgium. With my work I suggest that after misery life begins again.

The seat of past and present

A work that is now located in a residential care centre in Gits. Two parts are cut in one piece. There is an older part where residents can find themselves. And a design part as a symbol for the new age.

Note that in the railing I copied the hands of random residents.

Metamorphoses

Movement, evolution. The challenge to overcome the heaviness of the material in a composition of circles that look light because of their thin silhouette.

Metamorphoses

The circles are connected by an imaginary thread. When you look inside the tunnel of circles, your eyes meet infinity.

The Beautiful but Horrible Sea

Luc Verbeke, who is also a Skipper, knows very well that the charming sea can turn into a monster that wants to swallow you.

After the Explosion

War Memorial

This was left
a hole of emptiness
the seed of future
replaced by blood
please remember them
don't let those die
for the second time (L. V.)

Yin & Yang

(in cooperation with Veerle De Vos)

Tai-Chi circle, symbol of opposition and balance
Apart, but close to one another
Attracted, but the two parts separated
Melting, but not mixed
Sugar and salt (L. V.)

Order and Chaos

(in cooperation with Veerle De Vos)

Chaos turns into Order
And order dissolves into Chaos
So it is, and so it will always be
Through thousands and thousands of years
This has been the building stone of our evolution (L. V.)
