Vincent Mock recently won the Van Vlissingen Art Award. An overview of his most import work can now be seen for an exclusive three days in Museum Beelden aan Zee's cabinet.
Mock has a deep fascination for nature and everything that lives. Nature is the red thread in his work. Life-sized sculptures of endangered sea creatures, an inflated molecule that reflects our spirituality, the golden skull of a poached rhinoceros are just some examples of the many works that he has made, in order to publicize his vision of the world in which we live.
Mock also went to study the ocean, looking for sharks, but above all plankton. These special organisms are the inspiration for Mock's latest work.The Van Vlissingen Art Foundation and publisher Waanders & De Kunst publish a monograph on the work of Vincent Mock, written by Edo Dijksterhuis. The prize also included an inspirational trip to South Africa.
