Beauty of broken art by Bouke de Vries

What if destruction was something to behold? Something to admire.. Meet Bouke de Vries.

Bouke de Vries, the celebrated Dutch artist whose arresting ‘exploded’ artworks are made from fragments of broken antique ceramics. Bouke’s career as a ceramics restorer inspired his creative desire to find beauty in broken things and give them a new narrative.
Natural from the Netherlands where is start his studies at Design Academy Eindhoven, Bouke moved to England to fished his path as a student at London Central School of Art, from 1981 to 82 and after at West Dean College, 1989-92.

After working as an employer for many studios, in 1992 Boukee starts his career as a Self-employed ceramics conservator. And every day in his practice as a private conservator he was faced with issues and contradictions around perfection and worth: so years later in 2009 became an Artist.

The question is does our scar made us lets beautiful? According to Bouke de Vries, the answer is easy: HELL NO.

Bouke believes that is in the unperfect that uniqueness comes alongside beauty. Where even an almost invisible hairline crack, a tiny rim chip or a broken finger render a once-valuable object practically worthless, literally not worth the cost of restoring. There’s something incongruous about the fact that such an object, although still imbued with all the skills it took to make it.

The Venus de Milo is venerated despite losing her arms. Why not a Meissen muse?
