Marc Horentin

Sculptor or goldsmith? Born in Elsene in 1944. Studied Fine Arts in Brussels. Worked with Roger Somville and Jo Henrion. Studied bronze casting at the foundry of Pietra-Santa in Italy. «His challenge is to sculpt in small form, part by part, rocks, complete trees in bronze, characters in silver, miniature trees (Bonsai) behold the small world of the artist. Paul Delvaux considered his work a discovery of a new art form. The marble models, his metal constructions of rocks and the towers of Babel are formed, piece-by-piece, in silence. A mirror reflects a woman… 5 centimetres high. And yet what a dimension, sometimes monumental art has puzzling aspects.» Jean-Pierre PIROTTE
