Essay by Paul Hefting.
Guido Geelen occupies a prominent place in the world of Dutch sculpture, with his free and idiosyncratic approach to working with ceramics, bronze and aluminum. During the 1980s, Geelen achieved a conceptual breakthrough by producing three-dimensional fired clay pieces that evoked both the traditional and modern. In the mid-90s he began working in bronze, and later aluminum, casting and assembling vacuum cleaners, urinals and other everyday objects, and later cows and pigs. The runners, which are normally destroyed after the casting process, were left intact, becoming an integral part of the sculpture itself and giving his work an organic and process-oriented touch. Guido Geelen provides a complete overview of Geelen's work, and his development as an artist, from 1986 to the present day.
