ARTmonday: 15 Sculptures by Henk Visch

I think I initially came across a Henk Visch sculpture (the metallic faceted one, I believe) on Pinterest. Visch is a Dutch sculptor, painter, and draftsman who represented the Netherlands at the Venice Biennale in 1991. Some of the forms seem very current, though they were done some time back. I love the range, some pieces are very completely non-figural, while some are sensuously anthropomorphic, and others quite whimsical. Another seems to reference mid-century works by Donald Judd, and others have a Louise Bourgeois feel. Here is a sampling of 15, plus two installations.

For what remains, 1985
