Presentation

Ideologies in life, the decay of values and material are the themes present in the monumental work of van Bunningen.
Encompassing notions as primitivism and urbanism underlie his work.
The indestructible material impresses and contradicts the decay. His work emphasizes the moment of a monument. One of the sculptures presents the erosion of ideologies such as communism, fascism or capitalism.
The work moves towards a large-size physical appearance of a personified historical moment.
Van Bunningen says:
"My work is celebrating individual life beyond the body. It is a homage to individuality, a cathedral of a new religion."
The interests and the vision of the artist result then in large sculptural pieces, where the experience of the material is strong, and the size has an absorbing effect.
