Stefan Blom

Study Of The Bust, 2017

This sculptural self-portrait made of polyester resin offers no insight into the mind of its creator, Stefan Blom. The eyes are lightly shut, like that of someone sleeping. Just as we cannot know the meaning of his private pictographic language engraved into the work, we cannot know what is going on behind the peacefully closed eyes. This sculpture’s privacy adds to a sense of gentle integrity which is silently captivating.
