Hennie van Overbeek ( 1943, Utrecht) does not limit himself to the use of one type of material or expression. He sees different materials and their difficulties as a challenge. These materials vary from the so-called semi-precious stones such as jade-stone, rose quartz, amethyst or onyx to the more gentle stones as soap stone, alabaster and limestone. Overbeek also uses marble, granite or other materials such as bronze, lead, terrazzo or brick. His oeuvre consists of sculptures of stone which always reflect perfection and refer to archetypes: sometimes half human, half fable beings. He visualizes a world of dreams in stone, while sometimes showing an ironical approach to this world.
