Description:
Bart Soutendijk makes murals for public, commercial, and residential locations out of wire – his drawing medium of choice. The wire pieces are the final step in a simplification process that starts with a photograph or group of photographs. He makes and remakes a digital line drawing to emphasize only the essence of the subject, then, like the poet who reviews every word, he re-examines every turn and curve as he bends the wire into a sculpture. The final installation, a solid line in space in front of a moving shadow, has scale enough to suit a large wall without dominating the room. His work has been purchased by collectors from all over the world.
