Renowned for his monumental sculpture created primarily for open-air public locales, Hans Van de Bovenkamp has been described as an artist-mystic whose work, with its signature power, lyricism, and grand proportions, heightens the viewer's sense of fantasy, imagination, and discovery. From the primordial human urge to make sacred space, Van de Bovenkamp has created an oeuvre significant for the way his decisions about scale, material, content, and form dynamically interact with the natural and architectural world that surrounds his sculptures. Cascading water becomes a curtain in Ottowa Falls; with their sinuous, animated curves, his giant cloud and fiddlehead forms function as metaphors for the vital life force in all organic forms; his circles-and-waves series balances floating, lyrical units above anchored ring-like forms, denoting the sun, the moon, the ocean. And his bronze and stainless steel Menhirs with their indistinguishable eroticism and spirituality look back to the prehistoric, sacred, upright monumental stones built in the Neolithic and Early Bronze ages. This vivid monograph includes a detailed chronology highlighted by the artist's personal recollections, as well as illuminating essays on his creation of sacred space, monumental sculpture, and the seductive Menhir series.
