MARY KUIPER A bird’s nest evokes shelter, fertility and vulnerability. As everything passes It becomes a jewel of both form and content, Revealed as treasure when cherished.
The Dutch artist, Mary Kuiper, whose sculptures and drawings are increasingly becoming known and appreciated far beyond the borders of her native Holland, is a creative force in full blossom. Her unique work has been described as expressionistic and yet one cannot deny the sensual and emotional impact of her oeuvre. Her sculptures invite one to touch and carress, and her drawings oblige the eye to return over and over again to savour the utter humanity of her subjects.
