TONI VAN TIEL
Eindhoven, The Netherlands, 1979
Toni van Tiel is a sculptor on paper. His works are two-dimensional, but he builds his works up as if the whole public space arises from the paper. In his drawings, he creates monuments, fountains, and roundabouts: sculptures in imaginary public spaces. ‘They are reduced sculptures. In drawings, the structure doesn’t have to be correct”. Toni feels no need to realize these sculptures in three dimensions. They exist on paper, and the viewer’s imagination does the rest.
