Eppe symbolizes the enigmatic punctum, a small square block, which returns in different sculptures, perhaps part of the man or the artist that lies so deep or is locked out of necessity; it probably will forever remain hidden?
"The work was created under my eyes and my hands, not from a previously developed plan. I play with light, with lines, and I look for harmony in my work that grows slowly. ''

EPPE DE HAAN
Eppe de Haan painter, draftsman, sculptor. These are just labels that are used in an attempt to define the artist. For the artist, a brush, a pencil or a chisel are just tools to achieve a goal, because during the authentic artistic process the characteristics of each discipline interlock and form an inseparable unity. Eppe de Haan’s primary expression tools are marble, bronze and sometimes wood, because despite the labor-intensive proces of sculpting, these naturally impermeable materials are the best conductors of his vision of the driving creative urge. The titles with words like dreams and memories refer to the subconscious, deep in the labyrinth of the brain. The meanders in the gray matter harbor a petrified desire that try to wrest from the burden. In a few places the spirit succeeds to break through all the surface tension and a fragmentary appearance of human form gives a fascinating look at the world that lies behind. What remains somewhat hidden, increases the attractiveness of the image.
Eppe de Haan depicts in stylized form the power of dreams, of life fragments unconsciously stored and only in dark tranquility fall into place and tell a story. Eppe symbolizes the enigmatic 'punctum', a small square block, which returns in different sculptures, perhaps part of the man or the artist that lies so deep or is locked out of necessity; it probably will forever remain hidden? Yet it is human to –despite the effects- want to enter unknown territory. It is this intriguing side, this fourth dimension, which ensures that the sculptures of Eppe de Haan don’t let us go. With each new collection, the search for the missing pieces continues unabatedly, paradoxically, in the hope that they are not found, so that the palpable tension, the magic and beauty of the sculptures remain kept in infinity.
