CV

Sculptor Rick Keijzer lives and works in Amsterdam. He creates works in which the focus lies on oxide processes and changing materials. The themes in his work address the definition of civilization, the way in which humankind tries to preserve everything and the cyclical nature of life. These themes take shape in sculptures, wall reliefs and ‘paintings’ of steel, gold, silver and organic materials.
