Wieke Portret


Wieke Terpstra (Rijswijk 1956) is a sculptor and draftswoman. Educated at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and graduated cum laude for monumental work, she received the incentive prize of Stroom Den Haag for her work 'Heart' (1997) that could be felt in all other parts of the academy building. 

Her physical work is always in relation with the environment. Wieke draws with steel, tough work that evokes human feelings, versatile as she can build with all available materials. Monumental work as well as small and subtile art works. The great despair, the protection of the body and the brave facing of the uncertainties of life, are recurring themes. 

About the houses, produced in commission, wrote Marcel Prins (Alles Kan, Jubbenga 2011): "... On the basis of drawings and photographs Wieke Terpstra builds fragile houses of tough rebar. She writes the contours in the space, dancing like lace in the air. With the reinforcement material she draws the ribs of a protective casing. In the construction exudes a natural thing; an off twigs growing structure. Light and airy she reveals the vulnerable interior of spaces and makes them tangible. The houses are bearing the names of the inhabitants."
