Angle on – Sabi Van Hemert, Leather Kids

It's been a while since our last Angle on Artists post! And so here's the next one! What wild leather sculptures by artist Sabi van Hemert. Hemert, who lives and works in Rotterdam, creates sculptures that are a fusion between children and animals.

You really need to study her work, because it is not immediately clear what you are seeing: the relationship between viewer and sculpture is complex.
“I create images that evoke associations with people and animals. I imagine the balance between the many conflicting feelings and thoughts that a human being can have. Balance between opposites as attractive / repulsive, happy / sad or fear / security. My pictures have something in them that causes you to think what to see and feel that it gives you, and then confirm again denied.”

I am frankly, fascinated with these. What do you see in them or how do they make you feel? I would love to hear. Just comment below!
