HILDE VAN SUMERE (1932 – 2013)
Hilde Van Sumere followed a monumental sculpture course at the Academie voor Schone Kunsten in Brussels with Jacques Moeschal (Gare du Midi station). Her creativity rests on a powerful, simple but essential form. Her works are often geometric abstract pieces, but which still radiate a subtle sensitivity. Other than marble she has also created beautiful works in polyester, Corten steel and Perspex. Her sculptures are autonomous, self sufficient objects which reflect her vision of the world. Light plays an important role in Hilde Van Sumere’s work. This is why the detailed finishing to the different materials which she uses is so important in the design of her sculptures.
