Perceptive Resonance is the latest body of work created by Adriaan Diedericks upon his return from working with busts in sandstone at the Fourth International Artist Symposium in Neustadt, Germany in August 2017.

Hinting at Rodin’s carved works, the show explores themes of identity, masculinity and the ideal form through an experimental and instinctive methodology which combines classical forms with abstractions. Jutting sharp edges are contrasted with smooth surfaces of the human form.

Adriaan Diedericks’ (b. 1990, Cape Town) is a South African sculptor based in Strand, Cape Town. He grew up in rural Piketberg and his upbringing there has had a great impact on his work. After graduating with a Degree in Fine Art from Stellenbosch University in 2012, he did an apprenticeship with Lionel Smit from 2012 until the end of 2014.

He has exhibited extensively in group exhibitions, this will be his sixth solo exhibition.
His work can be found in private collections around the world – New York, Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Holland, Los Angeles, Australia, Las Vegas, Italy, Belgium, Germany, London, Canada, South Africa and Barbados.
