Martine Vyvey (°1958) is inspired by the suggestion of the volatile in movement. The artist makes sculptures from the essence of a movement. She takes out all unnecessary details that would weigh down on the whole. Her bodies and volumes seem to be floating. We easyly forgot quickly her sculptures are made from heavy materials such as steel and bronze. An admirer once said ‘She does not depict the birds but their flight, and not the trees but the rustle of their leaves.'
Martine’s work evolved to even greater expressions of emotions and ideas. The sculpture Chaos I for example refers to current events, the increasing violence against women and children, war. The emotions behind het work Wilskracht are finding the strength to persevere after setbacks. Levensdans is a representation of life for better and for worse.
The work of Martine Vyvey is part of collections in Belgium and abroad. She was commissioned to create the poster of the Memorial van Damme in 2009. In 2010 she created the trophy for the World Relief Organization as well as the Marie Popelin award.
