Ceramic Sculpture – Clay figurative sculpture series by Dutch artist Nique Kommerkamp.
About the Artist
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been busy designing things. And because I like so many things, I have attended quite a number of schools and courses which I did not complete; from Graphic Design to Fashion Academy. I’ve therefore worked and experimented with lots of different materials, like paper, wood, metal, perspex, stone, textile. But the last 15 years particularly with clay.
Working with clay relaxes me and it forces me to be patient. I like simple forms and try to leave as much to the imagination as possible. I get my inspiration from everything that evokes emotion. Shame, pride, lust, horror, endearment, arrogance … and that results in surprising series, with exciting variations on simple form themes.
“Overexposed” for example, is a series of sculptures that seem to expose themselves a little too much – literally and figuratively.
The series “Breast Taking” consists of wall tiles with various breast shapes. Realistic and surprisingly plastic variants of breasts.
“Skin Tight”, consists not only of torsos but also of a still growing collection of corsets, or rather ‘body armours’. Always with an erotic, sometimes with a magical, fairytale touch.
