Eja Siepman van den Berg holds a unique position in both Dutch ánd European art. From the early 1970s onwards, she has positioned herself in an elaborate contexts of figurative sculpture.
At first sight, the human body is Siepman van den Bergs 'prime subject'. But on a closer inspection, Siepman van den Berg transcends the merely figurative. Her body of work responds to more fundamental matters of sculpture, to the meaning of scale, symmetry and proportion--a mathematical approach to the organic-- and to the intrinsic qualities of her materials, bronze and stone.
This explains Eja Siepman van den Berg's affinity with both the giants of classical figuration ánd abstraction.
This publication will trace the development of Siepman van den Berg's distinctive visual idiom, in the context of both contemporaries and forerunners. It positions her as a true advocate of craftsmanship ánd more conceptual approaches of sculpture, of both tradition ánd renewal.
