Steven Palmen is a Belgian artist.
He started painting in his early twenties.
In a later stage, he focused more on sculptures and installations.
Over the past 25 years, he has gathered a diversified oeuvre.
The themes of transience of life, the strange attraction death can have, anatomy and time are recurring throughout his work.
Recently he has added a fascinating interactive aspect to his large installations
( see Time Lapse Project )
His 3D installations and sculptures are monumental and impressive, but also convey a sense of fragility.
They exude restrained movement and vitality.
By using life's raw materials, he speaks directly to the essence of the soul.
Steven (°1972) lives and works in Tongeren and Huy, Belgium, in an historic tin foundry building.
