VALENTIN VAN DER MEULEN
It is in his ability to combine the graphic project with the chosen image that Valentin van der Meulen reveals his mastery of drawing: the same force that emerges from drawing is found in the gesture and the gaze. Often the drawings of sculptors show their way of treating stone, wood, one thinks here of Baselitz or Dodeigne. The same weight of the hand is imprinted in the material. Valentin van der Meulen is not a sculptor, yet his drawing succeeds in giving the image a tangible presence in space.
