The concept ‘transformation’ is essential in Niko Hendrickx’s work: it is both subject and method. And if transformation is the basis, the outcome can only be an eclectic oeuvre.

‘Going where I haven’t been before’

I see my own creative brain as a universe in which every star and every planet represents an idea. No matter how much these celestial bodies seem identical, they are always different in content and form. There is this urge in me to explore all these ideas, an urge that takes me from one planet to the next. As soon as one idea has been looked at and is worked out, I turn my eye towards a neighbouring planet or the challenge of another star.

My universe lies in the area of tension between feelings, impulsiveness and reasoning. I often use metaphors and analogies to first build a reasoning and consequently a work of art. The main subject in my oeuvre is transformation and change. Often with an extra reflective layer about people and society.

The space flight in my own head has resulted in an uninterrupted chain of series and solitary works. I constantly explore new methods and techniques to find the best form for my ideas.

Aiming my telescope at new worlds and then visit them is a never-ending challenge. I am constantly on the look-out for unknown impulses and new elements that will enable me to found and fortify my own universe.
