SEBASTIAN DE LINE    -    SIX CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF AN AUTHOR

Sebastian de Line's artistic practice consists of sculpture, painting and installation.  The 'working or crafting' of a material becomes ritualized into a transformation of the media from its origins into something else.  While investigating new materials for a sculpture, he begins with mapping what each material connotes, what we associate with this particular material and its historical usage. These symbolic associations to a material convey universal meanings which are commonly understood. The semiotic connotations are a starting point, combined with form, colour and traces from his own hand to create a material story which is more personal and layered. In a way, it is like trying to write a sentence using abstract forms, colour, layers and found objects.

Project Space Zoete-Broodjesis a platform for contemporary art that provides solo presentations of artists with an experimental approach to the space.
In the series My Fiends the artist is given the opportunity to work two weeks prior to the exhibition.
