Paul Kaptein

Kaptein’s sculpture probes constructions of the temporal, the physical, and the metaphysical – employing disruption to question established systems. Through a refined manipulation of form, works forge an equilibrium between opposing conditions: movement and stillness, matter and void, the finite and the infinite. The body – referenced through both figuration and process – is positioned as a permeable site of ongoing remix. The exploration of these energetic and ontological tensions evokes states of transition, rupture, and loops – destabilizing permanence and linearity. 

By calling attention to the precariousness of the concrete, and gesturing to parallel possibilities, Kaptein’s skilfully rendered works prompt the viewer to question and explore conceptions of place, space, and temporalities.
