Piet Killaars 100 Years


This exhibition contains an overview of sculptures and pre-studies from the Bonnefanten collection.

Piet Killaars 100 Years 
Piet Killaars (1922, Tegelen - 2015, Maastricht) was a very talented sculptor and became famous for many of his statues throughout the Netherlands. Part of the pre-studies were gifted by the Killaars heirs, with the earliest work dating back to 1955. Together they give the impression of a talented and driven sculptor, who uses nature as his inspiration to add a spiritual dimension to his work. His visual language is recognizable by his abstract and symbolic representation of progresses of growth, exuding both power and fragility.

Even in his later works one can still see Killaars draw inspiration from nature. The Dutch public is mostly familiar with his monumental sculptures in public spaces. The display cabinet in the exhibition allows the viewer a peek behind the scenes: it shows many of the pre-studies Piet Killaars made for his larger sculptures.
