“Anyone who categorizes Xander Spronken (Maastricht, Netherlands, 1956) purely as a sculptor does not really do him justice. In addition to iron sculptures, he makes truly unique architectural constructions. Spronken approaches architecture the way he does all his artpieces. Negative space is valued as much as positive mass, air and void animated by light and the inexplicable emotion of volume.His passion for iron is the unifying thread in these works. In his own inventive and intuitive manner, he combines the traditional skills of a blacksmith with an authentic and multifaceted artistic practice. The unique signature of Xander Spronken’s can be found all over the globe. His artistic language is universal.”
