CHILD IN TIME

Nicolas

Dings

The motifs in the work of Nicolas Dings are derived from the ethics and aesthetics of the Renaissance. using diverse materials such as bronze, ceramics, plastic and textiles, he connects the material and the symbolic with the physical and the more spiritual in a contemporary way. In doing so, he creates a quirky and humorous universe with plenty of room for association. His visual language has already been tested socially and politically and still appears to be satisfactory. Because anyone who respects memory naturally becomes an explorer of fantasy.
