Kliniek aan de Maas has an ongoing exposition of bronze and ceramic sculptures by Esther Loffeld. Go to www.estherloffeld.com
Esther understands the art of seeing ‘everyday’ things with an open mind and freeing them from their ‘normality’, which she very aptly translates into her work.
Her ceramic and bronze female statues in various poses clearly exude an air of optimism. Tranquillity, humour and joy. The urge to touch them is virtually irresistible.
Esther is a passionate woman with a very positive look on life, a great sense of humour and plenty of self-mockery. Traits that, as a self-taught woman, proved essential for every aspect of both her personal and social survival, and… voila!
Esther’s women are already scattered throughout Europe and other continents. The men are simply outclassed, it seems!
