Artist
Kunstenaar (ZOUT) Hendrien Landeweer

Working as a sculptor on Texel is, according to Hendrien, "I am living my dream". Hendrien came to the island from an early age and learned to walk here. She kept coming back and is now permanently settled here. She finds her inspiration on the island and she works on her sculptures here in peace and freedom. The theme of her sculptures has been related to woman and freedom for many years: female torsos are a large part of her work. The shape, language and skin fascinate Hendrien. She also makes images related to the sea. She likes clear shapes and clean lines. You can call it minimalist figurative. Her images often invite the viewer to touch, feel and cherish. At that moment there is contact between the sculptor and the viewer, a nice extra dimension. Hendrien works in wood and stone (alabaster, serpentine, marble and granite), both challenging materials. She researches special wood finishes and likes to work with other materials such as metal, plastic, plaster or wool and likes to combine. Hendrien's important sources of inspiration are Brancusi, Barbara Hepworth, Ewalt Mataré, Jan Pater and the modern Northern Italian woodcarvers such as Aron Demetz. Hendrien is a member of the artists' associations Zout (Texel) and Artes (Bussum)
