Beautiful figurine of 2 children. Exceptionally beautiful!
Van de Vorst studied at the Academy of Visual Arts in Tilburg (1968-1970) and continued her studies in Amsterdam at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (1970-1974), where Piet Esser, Paul Grégoire and Theresia van der Pant were her teachers. In 1975 she won the Prix de Rome and made a trip to Italy. There she not only studied ancient sculpture, but also works by modern artists such as Marino Marini and Alberto Giacometti. Images of Moore have also inspired her. During her stay in Italy, she became fascinated by the use of color in antique statues. Thanks to a grant, she made a study trip to Carrara in 1982, where she fell under the spell of marble. In the following years she returned there regularly. She knows how to process the hard material in such a way that a dress or skirt appears extremely soft and tangible. She also experimented with the use of color in her sculptures, initially with paint, but later also by combining stone types in different colours, sometimes in combination with bronze.
Van de Vorst's oeuvre consists mainly of portraits and human figures. Because of the craft perfection and the use of color, she knows how to enchant with her subtle images. In 2012, Van de Vorst was awarded the Sacha Tanja Penning, designed by Guus Hellegers, for her entire oeuvre.
