Ivo Kamphuis - Silas

Descripción
Ivo Kamphuis - Silas
Técnica mixta - Firmado - Original - 2018

In sculptures, Ivo Kamphuis uses skeletons of animals he freed from poachers’ traps. He takes the carcasses to his studio where they are incorporated in bone sculptures. He gives them new life. Kamphuis’ work is about metamorphoses, transformation processes and transferences of the soul.

The central theme is the artist’s fascination with the remains of dead animals, with the hunt, with murderous man who considers himself superior as the ruler of creation and allows himself to commit the most heinous crimes against animals. Kamphuis cherishes the remains of dead animals as if they were relics. But instead of mourning their senseless deaths, he assembles authentic creatures in order to give evolution a positive twist.

Art in the collections of:

CODA Museum, Apeldoorn - Museum Jan Cunen, Oss - Stedelijk Museum Zwolle
