A strong bull, a new born calf or a graceful horse: the bronze sculptures by Ans Zondag are fascinating. She knows how to capture the animals in their purest form and this touches the viewers. The statues are almost portraits of the animals. Recurring themes in her oeuvre are Andalusian horses and energetic bulls. The characteristic patina, which Zondag developed herself, gives the statues a beautiful structure.
Ans Zondag (1959) studied at the Royal Academy for Art and Design in ’s Hertogenbosch. She lives and works in Spain where the animals in her direct surrounding are her inspiration.
