Herma de Wit

Orobio de Castro – Sculptures and Drawings

Herma de Wit’s bronze sculptures, objects, drawings, and etchings betray an almost obsessive relationship with nature – mainly isolated fragments of flora, occasionally an animal. Her meticulous study of the chosen subject and its subsequent interpretation attempts to capture both its power and vulnerability for eternity. Often magnified, sometimes intimate in scale, one dramatic, another nonchalant or shy, each object achieves a certain stillness through which the artist seems to sketch an almost human portrait. Though its creation lies far beyond our own imagination, and while nature itself is not art, De Wit’s intimate, contemplative observations are far more than simply facsimiles.
