de Munk Kerkmeer, Tom
“conceived in the Netherlands, born in Australia, raised a global being
born and bred with the movement of constant migration stirring my blood.
constantly surveying my surroundings,
with a notion of possible realities.
song lines vibrating in the earth
metaphysics on the airwaves,
stretching beyond the horizons.
resting on my luggage of global context,
contemplating the endeavours of humanity
sometimes extremely sad and confused.
sometimes one with the wonders of creation
with art as my passionate, demanding companion
I set myself to task.”

Gathering matter, often from the refuse of humanity, forms an integral part of the artists practice. For Tom sculpture is a form of alchemy investigating the relationship between human beings and matter. This work was transported on foot, by bicycle and by train.
