At Messmerizing Douwe presents a large, unique collectible art object MIRAGE together with a small object in limited edition NEW HORIZON.
Simple and clearly designed sculptures
Douwe’s sculptures are formed simply and with clarity, playful shapes referring to the human figure.
In his objects he plays with the fundamental principles of sculpture such as space, shape and mass. This play does not stay as an abstract conception but always has a consequence in the meaning of his sculptures.
As a sculptor, Douwe takes a fresh look at tradition, but also enjoys making references to comics and cartoons. His fascination with the possibilities and limits of sculpture as a medium goes hand in hand with a form of humor, which widens perspectives of and lends lightness to his works.
His sculptures are created by hand in his studio in Rotterdam and are unique or in limited edition.
Douwe has done both private and public commissioned art projects and has exhibited extensively throughout the Netherlands.

MIRAGE is a unique collectible art object measuring 110 x 65 x 165 cm. It is a touchable sculpture shaped by hand. Consisting of synthetic material and stainless steel.
