portrayed sculpture


CollectieB copy

This page shows the collection of sculptures Lucas Hoeben reproduced. The portrayed sculptures appear 2 dimensional as drawings, and 3 dimensional, as sculpture. The drawings reproduce the contours of a depicted sculpture. The sculptures are merely based on the sizes published under a picture of a sculpture in art books or magazines: Length, width and height. Lucas Hoeben catches these sizes in frames of plaster. 

In 2023 Lucas Hoeben introduced a new material in addition to their work; clay. This came with the addition of colour with the glaze on the clay.

Glaze is a new field to explore for Lucas Hoeben. The form however is still a reproduction of the outline of sculptures as used in the drawings one can see on the pages this site. However, now the outline is carved out of the material.
