Pe Hagen


About the artist

"Playing with the shapes and textures of nature and their effect on the viewer is central to my work."

The works, mainly modelled in plaster, appear like sensual beings caught in a frozen movement whose imagined continuation is left to the interpretation of the viewer. The sculptures seem familiar and strange at the same time and thus invite us to rethink our own patterns of perception.
