Ben Bonke an artist / sculptor who continues searching for new combinations to create a unity in painting, sculpting and performances.
Bonke himself speaks in this context of "life-line" in his work.
With this he means that his development as a human being whose work reflects his life as a diary. The interesting part of it is that in his work tradition and renewal are balanced equal components.
These components are until today present in his artistic approach. Bonke shall always be searching for ways and forms to move people, to persuade the observer to look closer; and in a different way to forward the message of his creations. To shake people up in a positive way!
Those who see the essence of the sculpture can give it its right to exist, than the intention is reached and communication is achieved.
By this a trinity is achieved between artist, work of art and observer.
ARTIST - WORK OF ART – OBSERVER - BECOME A TRINITY
