Jørgen works as a sculptor since more than 20 years

studio

 

Passionate and with profound respect for maintaining the inherent beauty of things, Jorgen Missotten’s work embodies a symbiosis of labor and craftsmanship as an artist, stone sculptor and painter.

Nestled in the green region south of Brussels, he has cultivated a habitat in perfect harmony with nature. He seamlessly integrates this relationship into his work, finding a beautiful and uncomplicated balance. Missotten extends his approach from stone sculpting to painting, translating the timeless essence of stone into captivating strokes and movements on canvas.

In ‘Polishing The Clouds,’ I aim to encapsulate the essence of my surroundings, transforming fleeting moments and intimate projects into tangible expressions. Each piece serves as a visual narrative, weaving together layers of emotion and introspection.

Central to my artistic philosophy is the pursuit of capturing light, as evident in my series ‘Peeling The Light.’ Through this body of work, I employ a unique technique, utilizing tools to create impressions of sliced matter. Whether it’s the weighty solidity of stones or the ephemeral nature of air, each slice becomes a vessel for illuminating the interplay between form and luminosity.

 

 

 

 

“He challenges in his unique way the tension between the functional design object and non-functional art. Because of his love and attention for matter, he creates synergies between distinct types of objects that meet each other in a contemporary sculptural language of shapes.” – S. Vanderstichelen
