Reinhilde Van Grieken is a ceramic artist born in 1985 in Herentals, Belgium. Reinhilde studied sculpture and ceramics and became internationally known since 2006. She participated in numerous exhibitions and biennials in Vallauris (FR), Zaragoza (SP), Höhr-Grenzhausen (D), Andenne (B), Mons (B), München (D), Kilkenny (IRL) and more.
“Her work is sculptural, part of the fine arts. She asks questions and wants the spectator to ask questions too. Questions about the essential meaning of her work in connection to the appearance. It communicates about events that sculpted her life. It makes the work divers for she does not want to get stuck in the same forms. Some ceramics are abstract, cylindrical and organic, some are figurative, often colored, some monochrome. She masters many ceramic techniques and uses them as a three-dimensional paint. Reinhilde looks for a strong composition and linear rhythm, what gives the sculptures their monumentality.” Text by Johan Valcke
