As a sculptor Monique Bosch (1960) puts thoughts and feelings into matter, into bronze
sculptures. This fascinating process meanders like a river through the landscape
of her life. And it takes time for this.
Figurative bronzes, humans and animals, sometimes both combined in one figure, are
characteristic of the work of Monique Bosch. From childhood on she uses her hands
to make forms out of clay and wax. Raised in a cultural climate friendly to art and
having supported her artistic development with several courses, she became an authentic
artist, following her own ideas. By her own inspiration or by order of clients special
narratives are translated into original sculptures.
Her studio Boschbeeldend in De Hoven (Zutphen) is where Bosch works and teaches sculpting.
She played an active role in an art collective Kunst op de Hoek in Zutphen from august
2015 to February 2018.
‘Two Birdies B’ is a work of public art, and consists of two large bronze statues.
Situated as they are on opposite riverbanks of the river IJssel’, Birdie ‘Brummen’
and Birdie ‘Bronckhorst’ contribute to the relationship of these communities.
