To Excite and Stimulate, a pair of bronze and wooden sculptures by Belgian artist Ann Vrielinck, make up her diptych work Lucifer.
The painting looks like a bunch of matchsticks that someone ignited just a few minutes ago and is now smoking. It stands for the euphoria that comes before the subsequent serenity and peace.
Those who take a closer look will see what appear to be human figures moving through the haze. Thin and delicate, the figurines yet manage to make an impact.
The lost wax technique allows us to make bronze sculptures with incredible detail. Each bronze sculpture from the Lucifer To Stimulate - To Excite series is part of a limited and numbered edition and bears the artist's signature.
