This is a unique work


  • Han van Wetering (Maastricht, 1948) makes colorful, baroque sculptures and objects in ceramics and bronze. Recurring themes in his work are beauty and transience, eroticism and social engagement. It often arises in a series such as ripped open bloody animal figures and the towers (buildings). The work is direct and shows unrulyness, originality and craftsmanship. Sometimes it is raw and intense, at other times dreamy and poetic. In addition to sculptures, Van Wetering also makes ceramic drawings.

    The visual power of Han van Wetering's work is great. Intended to confuse the viewer through a combination of seriousness, self-mockery, humor and absurdity. This places his work in a southern tradition. But no more than that. Because Van Wetering's oeuvre cannot be divided into a particular movement, it is far too autonomous for that. Just like the artist himself, who has been mainly busy for a long time in his spacious studio with studio garden at a distance from the city. Here, in its own universe and reality, things come into being. Matter can lie here for years, until the artist sees it and "it becomes something". His urge to make things grows every day.

    Han van Wetering's work is included in museum collections including the Bonnenfantenmuseum, Museum van Bommel van Dam and the Princessehof. As well as in corporate and private collections at home and abroad. Throughout the Netherlands, colorful works by the artist can be found in public spaces. Of which the best known in Venlo, Maastricht, Herkenbosch and Purmerend.
