BEGGA
D’HAESE
(1939)
B
Very rapidly, however, she found that her real love
was the subtle, timeless working of wood and
marble. During her first year of production she
made The Times newspaper twice, and in 1970 she
sold a sculptured chess set to a Swiss art collector
at the Kunstmesse in Basel.
egga d’Haese was born in 1939 in Aalst,
Belgium. The younger sister of well known
sculptors, Reinhoud and Roel d’Haese, she had to
work hard to make a name for herself as a sculptor.
Yet, since 1969, she has resolutely asserted herself
with the quiet strength of a woman who, despite
ten pregnancies, has lost none of her desire for selffulfilment.
Begga d’Haese succeeds in taking external
sensations under full plastic control. Her work
exudes happiness, and she can only create when
in a positive mood. Devoid of bitterness or parallel
feelings, her art tends to make the world a nicer
place. It radiates a tactile quality that strokes our
senses and gives us an intense desire to touch the
material. Her sculptures invite the viewer to caress.
Believing that iron would be ‘her’ material, Begga
studied welding at the technical secondary
school in Veurne (Belgium), in order to create
metal sculptures. To celebrate the school’s 25th
anniversary, she and the other pupils of the welding
class built a monument weighing 2000 pounds and
standing 4 metres high that was placed in front of
the school building.
