Round female figures reflecting peace and tranquility
She's inspired by the nature of women. Her sculptures radiate calm, tranquility and peace. She emphasises the round forms of woman, which she depicts in a stylised way, in search of the core of live, the soul of man.
Twenty years long, Friedy Evers-Duijsters lived outside the Netherlands, three and a half of which in Mexico. That time has had a lasting influence on her work. The Indian women on the markets fascinated her. In their traditional costumes, they sat quietly with their merchandise. They did not seem to be bothered by the hurried world around them.
Friedy Evers-Duijsters tries to let her sculptures radiate peace, warmth and contentment. Something we so badly need nowadays. So, slowing down, away from the trendy society and a bit back to the simple being and daring to enjoy that.
