About Eppe de Haan

Eppe de Haan began his artistic career as a painter having studied at the Royal Academy for the visual Arts in the Hague. As a painter he seemed to be searching for what could not be seen. His search led him to the three dimensionality of sculpture which has given him the possibility of revealing hidden depths, fracturing surfaces to discover what lies beyond, using a fragment to suggest the whole, juxtaposing different aspects to reflect the complexity and mystery of his subject.

There is an implicit movement in de Haan`s sculptures, a sense of past and present. The strong composition that defined his painting is always present in his sculpture. The beauty of marble, its inherent sensuality, its demand for discipline is able to express the tension between control and freedom which is so central to de Haan`s sculpture. This is very apparent in the sculptures of his angels; wanting to emerge yet holding back representative of a return to the dramatic narrative of some of his early paintings as well as perhaps a lessening of the control that has distinguished his recent work. (Helaine Blumenfeld 2007)

"Everything is sculpture. Any material, any idea without hindrance born into space, I consider sculpture"

Customer comment on 'Brasil - Chess (Corporate Commission of an entire edition)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Although it seemed a daunting project to commission a sculpture on the internet with a tight deadline, Plamen Dimitrov in Bulgaria made it as easy as possible for me in Brazil by producing a series of little clay sketches after each email and sending photos it seemed by return.
