The work of Willem Heesen, vases and bowls, the autonomous objects and flat glass panels, always refer to nature. The landscape around the Linge, the mystery of life in the water, by Heesen poëtisch translated in his entire oeuvre. Heesen knows like no other to give a simple bowl or vase the illusion of a sunset on the Linge, on the banks of reeds or threatening skies with approaching storm.
