Figurative bronzes, humans and animals, somtimes 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 , folowing 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 also participates in an art collective. Their work is permanently
exhibited in their exposition shop Kunst op de Hoek in Zutphen.
‘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 Ijsse’, Birdie ‘Brummen’
and Birdie ‘Bronckhorst’ contribute to the relationship of these communities.
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.
