The artist José Vermeersch (1922–1997) is known for his ceramic sculptures of heterogeneous figures. Yet he was a painter, weaver and designer too, who created a rich oeuvre imbued with his passion for people, animals and life. This book pays tribute to the genesis of Vermeersch’ figurative work and uses around a hundred sculptures and paintings to show the exceptional way in which his pictorial and his ceramic work are interwoven. The indeterminate and non-binary character of Vermeersch’ oeuvre – from gender to species (human/animal) – is explored in depth along with ideas such as sustainability and fragility.
