The fluidity of nature captured in bronze

The statue series Victory originated from a wooden sculpture. The sculpture has been made from a massive trunk of more than a hundred years old olive tree, in which the shape of the wood has been leading.

The shape of the statue eventually became a winged figure. Whether the figure ascends or falls to the ground is not clear, it depends on the viewer’s interpretation.

Inspiration

Molds have been made of the original olive wood statue, of which casts in bronze and synthetic resin have been made. As an ode to one of the most beautiful statues of classical antiquity, the Nike of Samothrace, the series of statues has been called Victory.

Inspired by the work of Yves Klein, some sculptures are executed in blue by Yves Klein.

Samuel Dejong: “The different designs and colors of the same flowing form each time evoke a different emotion in me and depicts the illusionary nature of reality for me”.

Samuel Dejong

With his sculptures, Samuel Dejong (1971) – our resident artist – stretches the limits of technical as well as aesthetic potential. For only with an open mind, free of preconceptions, can one accomplish what initially seemed impossible, and thereby elevate something relatively inconspicuous – or disconcerting even – to the level of art.
