to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Eric Geerdens - plaster sculptures

'The sculptures reflect the artists personality and personal history.'

(can't keep my eyes from this one, it is so ... I can't explain)

La Boudeuse - the sulking one
(rather poetic, well captured mood I think)

works of John Turner Burkitt in the background

at during the Affordable Art Fair Brussels
These sculptures actually remind me of a comment I got - on one of my works - from a visitor during my Open Studio Days two years ago. The woman said that 'bandaging' was not an 'art discipline'. I guess that, if no one ever tried to use a different material to express himself , we all would still be painting caves with pigments and sticks.
