The Belgian artist Ann Vrielinck thematises and questions aspects of human action and behaviour in a community through her bronze sculptures. She often illustrates these through groups of slender, strongly abstracted bodies in rough, untreated bronze. She always needs only a few details to make the gestures and movements of her figures clearly recognisable.
Ann Vrielinck's (born in 1966) artistic training began at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bruges, Belgium. In 1988, she obtained a higher degree at the St-Lucas School of Arts. Later, she also completed an apprenticeship and took some courses in the restoration of paintings and ceramics. She now teaches fine arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bruges.
