The Academy of Beaux -art in Bruges is where Nancy Vuylsteke de Laps started her artistic schooling. Her true calling found its debut in Paris where she had the chance to become a pupil of Noorzadé Brener. Noorzadé herself was a student of Ossip Zadkine who had his atelier in Montparnasse, Paris. It is with Noorzadé that she learned to express that what human beings have most, mystery
Noorzadé taught her students to learn only through observation and comparison. The sculpture is a body, or lesson of live, and just needs to transcript, and translate the truth of its form. the heart is the most essential part. Through Nancy's work she tries to bring life to art, and art to life.
A secret cry, soul and spirit of mankind, an emotion a light a souvenir. The human being wants to keep back feelings strength and power. To go beyond reflection and reinvent a new world for space to becomes tactile and visual. To discover the key to truth one must observe. To create a silent work of art, to make sure it contains a mystery, a secret enigma and therefore find the key to discover the truth. To create through our research and questions, simply ….humanity.
