Maurice Blik: Exhibition & Artist’s Talk
16 September 2019 - 20 September 2019
Bowman Sculpture, London
After decades of making sculpture, in the last two years, Maurice Blik has identified a unique and personal way of working to externalise his thoughts and feelings. Now his sculptures leap, dance, stride, walk, hurry, peer, to express what it feels like to be alive.
Born in Amsterdam in 1939 and having survived Bergen-Belsen, Maurice arrived in the UK aged six. The ability to come to terms with those experiences, to confront the face of humanity that he had witnessed, stayed silent in him for some 40 years until it found a voice in the passionate and exquisite sculpture that he began to produce in the 1980s.
Maurice Blik talk 6.30pm, Thursday 19 September, Bowman Sculpture Gallery
