YVES BOSQUET (Uccle, 1939)
Yves Bosquet studied ceramic arts at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture et des Arts Visuels de la Cambre. He has a keen sense of observation and an intense attention for the outside world, which he employs to create portraits that are an amazing likeness. He also pays particular attention to the faithful reproduction of the face whilst adding a romantic touch, full of tenderness, innocence and serenity for his representations of children. In his works the artist disappears and the model comes to the forefront. The humility of the artist is present in all the models. The model itself is in the foreground, with all its details. The whole range of human emotions is tackled and represented with great tenderness. In 1992 Yves Bosquet discovered the possibilities of wood as an art material. It was also wood which made him understand that working on a large scale was his way of making an impression.
