A key element in the works by Theo Schepens is “balance”. A physical balance but also a spiritual balance between man and women. The result sculptures of male and female figurines interacting with each other taking poses in which they try to find and hold their balance. It all starts with the smallest and extremely speedy sketches he makes and then uses these as a starting point for his sculptures.
These sculptures have a rare quality. These do not take any effort to understand the meaning of the artist and the world he has created with them is highly recognizable. since his figurines have not changed for over 30 years. The males and females in his sculptures still look the same as 30 years ago, but what has remained is the timeless quality of his sculptures. This is he kind of art that children will interact with when they see it for the first time and remember it because of the shiny quality and the highly understandable action they are in. Kissing on horses, on a wire and even love making . all these actions come along . Schepens has created a “shiny” world in aluminium to love.
