He wants to create art – not produce it” – R.Lapré
Emile Cornelis has been inspired by the ancient Egypt, Greek and Romain. Sculptures out of that period have got, so he feels, almost a magical atmosphere. Striving after perfection, in combination with these influences he creates the most timeless amazing sculptures.
The final shape of his sculptures is not just a technical, but maybe even more an emotional process. Emile Cornelis feels that a sculpture has to be shaped by feeling, instead of the logic or the mind. For this reason he starts with a sculpture without a pre-made plan.
Starting from these ideas Emile Cornelis expresses his emotions in these most different, timeless, but especially beautiful sculptures.
