Samuel Dejong
Resident Artist

With his sculptures, Samuel Dejong (1971) stretches the limits of technical as well as aesthetic potential. For only with an open mind, free of preconceptions, can one accomplish what initially seemed impossible, and thereby elevate something relatively inconspicuous - or disconcerting even - to the level of art. With this philosophy, Samuel challenges us to witness the beauty of the foundation of our ecosystem: insects. No other creatures are as elegant and fragile yet strong and indestructible. They embody pure aesthetics, with their utmost detailed perfection. In his art, Samuel strives for the same level of perfection. Using technical precision he developed as a surgeon, he replicates the insects’ anatomy, producing copies virtually indistinguishable from the original. One might say they even surpass the original’s beauty, because Samuel places the insects in an entirely new context.
