Biography

Nancy Vuylsteke de Laps was born on the 19th of April in 1967, in Anvers, Belgium. She started her education by studying classical sculpture at the Bruges Fine-Arts Academy.

Her real education took place in Paris where she was lucky enough to be an apprentice of Noorzadé Brener (whose whereabouts are currently unknown ) and she was a former student of Ossip Zadkine who had his own studio near Montparnasse.

Under Nuzarde Brener’s leadership Nancy had learned to express the mystery of human body, although she studied it only “visually”.

For this artist sculpture was a body and life lesson, transmission of the forms in their true state.

Key ideas

She tried to transpose life into art and art into life. Man’s secret scream, his spirit and soul, emotions, light, memories were the things that she wanted to express through her work, with the aim to move farther simple thinking and create a new world in which space becomes tactile and visual.

She is striving to make silent artworks which keep secrets, an enigma, a key to the truth.
