The artistic practice of Arjen Lancel consists of creating sculptures and installations, making art on commission, conceiving and curating exhibitions. www.arjenlancel.nl
Creating a work of art is like a sequel to reality, where the public space and our personal surroundings are reflected; where the paradox of life is a tool to create; where the longing for beauty and the power of the elusive is translated in metaphysical objects and utensils; where meanings and stories enrich man but also encapsulate him. Where our imagination is both helper, inventor, author and self-deceiver.
