Guido GeelenSculptuur / Sculpture
Guido’s capacity to remain critically curious leads us, time and again, to be surprised, seduced and amazed by his work
> Richly illustrated monograph comprises 22 years of work

Guido Geelen (Thorn, 1961) adopts a unique stance as sculptor. His unorthodox outlook on the use of materials such as clay (ceramics), bronze, iron, aluminium, glass and textiles is linked with an iconography of recognizable contemporary and classical images.
In 2000 a book containing a complete view of Guido Geelen’s work, spanning the period 1986 - 2000, was published when he received the Dr. A.H. Heineken Prize for Art.
This second survey, spanning the period 2000 - 2022, gives consideration to this autonomous work and his commisioned work, to museum presentations and to his work in the public domain.
