Van Wijck has been educated as sculptor at
the City of Academy the Jan van Eck Academy
The last 25 years, he worked in Roermond. The old
chapel, in which Dick van Wijk has his atelier, was
formely the studio of the world famous Stained Glass
painter Joep Nicolas.
Now Dick van Wijk claims his place among the famous
artists on the field of three-dimensional art. His
work expresses a never-ending research on the subject
of combining geometrical and organic forms.
A repeating element in the objects of Dick van Wijk
is the human body, the base of this concept. The circle-shape
is the symbol of consistency and newborn life. These
"attributesé, together with several animal
shapes, gave the sculptor Dick van Wijk a broad range
to work with. The materialisation of the search can
be visualised in bronze, steel, marble and glass.
Thereby represents the merger of the different materials
a kind of irony and dynamics.
