Biography

Greet Ketelaers (°1950) lives and works in Veurne - Belgium
male nude: clay - bronze

Her sculptures have a recognizable human emanation. The focus is on enlarged limbs. The poses and restrained colour are supported by the morphologic language of hands and feet. Her clay sculptures are unique. Now and then she has a sculpture cast in bronze. Each bronze sculpture is finished with a strong patina and carries an identification number.
