Welkom bij Readytex : Roddney Tjon Poen Gie
Roddney Tjon Poen Gie: compositions of letter-signs of the ancestors. Rodney Tjon Poen Gie was originally trained in the art of painting but he is also well known for his work as a sculptor. He produces a variety of sculptures amongst which small ceramic sculptures and beautifully detailed wooden sculptures. Because of its original shape and structure, the artist has also started experimenting with the so called “art trouvé” or pieces of driftwood which he attaches to wooden pedestals and sometimes works on with saw and drill but almost always paints. In painting these creations he uses beautiful contrasting colors and lines depending on perception or subject of observation.
