 ARTIST STATEMENT

Art and the creation of artwork are difficult to explain. Many people ask me why I create sculptures. When answering these inquires I seem to always come up with different reasons. I believe that every person needs a creative outlet. There needs to be a way to turn your creativity into a physical object. My method is to transform pieces of steel into objects of conversation.

When I was a child, my father would spend his weekends scouting throughout the San Francisco Bay Area capturing his creative thoughts through his camera lens. Accompanying him on many of these ventures put me in touch with many forms of public art. I never really thought to deep about the artwork but they did make a lasting impression. From my youth to adult life, creating things was something that happened either from work or hobbies. Something was still missing, a true release of my creativity.

Within the past five years I realized the creation of my sculptures lets me express myself when there is no other way to do so. When a certain thought or feeling can be expressed in a physical way, and I execute the physical way, then I have released my creativity.

 


 

 

ARTIST BACKGROUND

Esmoreit Koetsier is a Dutch born design engineer with a passion for art. As a child Esmoreit remembers the presence of artwork in public places. These experiences along with his current professional career were the motivating factors in his interest in art. His sculptures reflect experiences in his life or in society. He combines years of experience in metal fabrication and product development to achieve the creation of sculptures that range from abstract to industrial. Esmoreit prefers to work in steel, aluminum and stainless steel.

While in school, Esmoreit spent a semester in Florence Italy. This experience along with travels throughout Europe deepened his desire to create art. Upon his return, he became more and more focused on sculpture. His work ranges in size from small to large scale. Currently four of his works are displayed in various public locations and private collections.

Esmoreit is continuing his education in art and design. He works from his home studio in Lake Elsinore California. Some of his other interests include sailing, photography, climbing and traveling.
