Sculpture is the art of bulges and hollows, the art of
representing shapes in the play of light and shadow.

GALERIE, ATELIER & WERKSTATT

Apart from a large variety of ceramic artifacts, exclusive home lighting and fancy garden objects, the 380 square meters, light-flooded gallery, houses the life-size bronze sculptures as well as numerous smaller bronze plastics created by Iris Rousseau.

All year round other works of contemporary and internationally well-known painters are also presented here. The repertoire shown ranges from oil paintings, pastels, and chalk designs, to lithographs and photographs.

Also gaining in popularity are the artist couple’s guided tours through their studio, workshop and garden. 

Here Iris Rousseau and Eduard van Leeuwen candidly show their working materials, tools, silicone forms and plaster negatives as well as positives; and explain in a descriptive manner the labor intensive procedure of the complete process involved in the casting of a bronze sculpture.
