I recently stumbled upon the site of Harmen de Hoop and about 30 minutes after had finished looking through his extensive portfolio of work ranging from what he calls, ‘sculpture’, ‘living sculpture’ or ‘updated sculpture’.
Quite simply the sculptures are a series of urban interventions, the living sculptures include a series of farmyard animals and the updated sculptures are a series of modifications made to existing statues and structures. He also has a small selection of paintings (pictures). Well worth a look.
