_______________________________________

Tim Breukers’ work emerges where classical, technically astute sculpting clashes with humor, banality and Jurassic Park. He playfully tries to stretch the boundaries of traditional sculpture, at the same time subjecting pop cultural elements to a solemn, sculptural treatment. Breukers even manages to connect the two spaces in which he will this year present his work in a level-headed, but humorous way: 78 rolls of tape scream out: ‘fragile!’.
 
In his collage books Breukers searches for ways to free himself from the limitations of clay as a medium. Working on paper is a lot less labor intensive and much faster. Because paper does not take a week to dry, ideas can flow freely and ripen to later be cut out or reworked. Although the three-dimensional quality of sculpture is absent from the colorful pages, the illusionistic shapes betray a fascination with the potential of spatial objects.
