Berlinde De Bruyckere’s work deals with the transformation, transcendence and reconciliation of bodies in the face of mortality. These bodies are often animal, human or inanimate. She is often inspired by the legacies of the European Old Masters and Christian iconography, as well as mythology and cultural lore. Berlinde De Bruyckere plays on existing histories and imagery with new narratives that are suggested by the artist's choice and then manipulation of, her materials.
