EDDY STIKKELORUM

"The total freedom of form itself is the basis for all my work". Stikkelorum experiments with modern materials like fiberglass hardened epoxy, Styrofoam, laminated wood, cast aluminum and other materials that come from the world of interior and industrial design. He is constantly searching for the contrast between hard and soft, solid and liquid, color and colorless, construction and deconstruction and finally for the balance between all these possibilities.
