BETWEEN HEAVEN & EARTH
DISCOVER PHILIPPE TIMMERMANS
Philippe Timmermans is a sculptor pur sang. For over 30 years, Philippe has created three-dimensional prototypes and performed sculptural assignments for, among others, museums. He also took care of the design and publicity of it. Since 2011 he has been concentrating on his own work.
His figurative sculptures try - in a contemporary way - to give shape to non-tangible feelings and reflections. The more realistic sculptures are rooted in the tradition of classical sculpture and form cautious, vulnerable answers to various questions or concerns. In the series Ethnicities he tries to give place to external human images through characteristic headlines.
Philippe Timmermans was born in 1957 in Wilrijk (Belgium) and he studied sculpting at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent.
