Filip Hamerlinck (°1964) makes sculptures, which combine an intuitive and cerebral approach. His work finds its origin in the interaction between thinking and feeling. The simplicity of his works are deceivingly childish and hide a complex strategy and analytical process.
As a former fighter pilot, he experienced the essence of his job as being aware of his position in space and time, relative to surrounding static and dynamic factors, better known as ‘situational awareness’. As an artist he is exploring the translation of this three-dimensional consciousness into sculptures.
