Schoten 2019 By GUY EMBRECHTS
My C.V. will tell you that I am a general physian in Schoten ( Antwerp, BE ). Next to my daily job i also cherised a great fascination for all arts and media around me. The creation of an art collection was a dream for me and my partner . The final choice we made was for CONTEMPORY GLASS.
A rather logic choice since my partner A. Ryckaert attended study and workshops at I.K.A. Institute of Arts and Crafts ( Mechelen, BE). The head of the glassstudio at that time was Mrs M. SVOBODOVA ( CZ ). The result of all this formed the real base for our interest in this medium.
Contempory yes, since we are participating this exiting time now. Still let us not forget that glass finds its origin in century old artistical techniques and forms. Glass used to be the material for emperors now available to all.
Our collection has been purchased and has grown rather based on emotion and love for this medium. Not so much on intellectual considerations. That is why the diversity of this collection is that broad.
Our goal and the future of our collection is simple.
To provide a good location for the works and open up the collection to show the great works to the interested admirors. This being the challenge and task of all collectors.
SHARE BEAUTY WITH ALL.
Enjoy the site.
