- In Short
Lieve Rutte’s sculptures are shamelessly seductive. They welcome you into an amazing visual world. There is an abundance of desirable objects: bright colours, tactile textures and shimmering skins. They form their own language of imagery with a contagious energy and excitement. Visitors are made part of an abstract, sculptural spectacle.
Studying and transforming materials is an important art of the process. By experimenting intuitively with different materials, Lieve creates room for innovation and rediscovery. Each sculpture has a story wherein textures and colours meet. A recurring element is stacking, representing a childlike freedom. After all, we all had blocks to play with. This, and finding balance, are the starting points of Rutte’s sculptures.
