[SM]. • Balkenhol's sculptures are timeless: they are types, art characters • Balkenhol uses the classic form of wood sculpting and returns to the primal technique of this genre • Balkenhol's sculptures seem as if they came into existence in a calm and unpretentious moment, with no emphasized gestures and characterized by strong intentional balance.
PROVENANCE: Private collection Great Britain.
