Berlinde De Bruyckere — Trilogy

These publications on the work of Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere presents for the first time her recent scuptures and installations circling around the subject of the human figure and nature. Working in a range of sculptural media, including wax, wood, wool, horse skin and hair, the central themes around which her work revolves are the vulnerability and extreme fragility of people, animals and nature. Berlinde De Bruyckere is not a mere sculptor, she treats her work as much as a painter as a sculptress. In creating her work she applies the wax pigments in layers like paint and this colouring process leads to an incredible realism in the skin tones.
