We are delighted to officially release the debut of the collection Flemish sculptor, Daisy Boman.
Its distinctive men - Bo 'figures at the height of 4 sculptures wall of the box and a single perspex sculpture attached.
Piece by piece, in its absolute simplicity, which expresses the nature of existence, both in form and material. It evokes a sense of universal, to forward to the challenges of life and the destiny of man. The three dimensions of each element of the sculpture allows the viewer to see different aspects of each piece, which offers a new perspective both day and night. Daisy's Boman sculptural works are all individually hand finished.
Growing up, Boman\'s favourite activity was to draw. Boman grew up in Belgium, near Antwerp and her passion and love of art led her to pursue her studies in Photography and Interior Design at the Academy of Fine Art.
When embarking on her studies, she experimented with ceramics and favoured this medium which inspired her to create works and push for a new direction and way of working.
In 1981, Boman saw the move to South Africa in which an opportunity for her Architect husband arose and the couple moved to Johannesburg.
It was here that Boman\'s art career flourished and the National ceramic Exhibition selected her work for several exhibitions. Boman\'s work was strongly influenced by her social situations and this touched base on her South Africa\'s Apartheid.
In 1986, the artist would return to Belgium to exhibit at her first exhibition in Antwerp. Her exhibitions have been held in France, Belgium and South Africa.
Ideas and inspirations come to Boman frequent and quickly. Her works include figures that in some way or another interact with each other in their composition or movement they undertake. This can be through climbing, in their midst of action by walking or running. The artist allows us to see struggle and hardship in we face and this is something in which unites us all and questions whether one person\'s struggle really differs from another.
She leaves her \'Bo-men\', facial features out and asks us to look at what they actually are and what they represent, rather than what they look like. The colour of their appearance or clothing of uniform that Boman places them in should not matter and this is why she chooses to make them purely white.
Sketching is the first process in which the artist thinks out for her \'bo-men\', however it is often the case that the sketch never turns out like the final product. She moulds and manipulates her figures by hand and allows them to dry naturally in the open air and as time progresses she then puts them at highest temperatures in a hot oven. When this has been completed Boman composes them on mounted board and allows their characters and personalities to really shine and take place. show less
