Monica van den Berg

Central to my work is humanity, and most notably, the human head, the centre of thought, reason, and creativity. My sculptures reflect an intense relationship between myself and the clay with which I work.

The bronze sculptures as a series was built on the idea of creating a form around the lacuna or open space. My observation comes from sea-washed pebbles and shells where movements of water, sea and sand have created holes. My intention is to inspire the viewer to take notice of different forms and shapes created by nature.
