In his many commissions, Marcus Ravenswaaij works steadily in the tradition of Dutch monumental sculpture, as it developed after the war. Over the years his forms have acquired greater freedom, and the humour of relative values also appears more in his work.
Marcus Ravenswaaij does not want to be described as a socially committed artist; he is more attracted by the beauty of life than by the horrors and cruelty which exist in the world, although he certainly does not shut his eyes to these. He is at the same time a romantic and a realist who does not thunder noisily through life. On the contrary, Marcus Ravenswaaij looks around him attentively, as he walks along …
The subjects, in which man and animals have a central place, are clearly made with love and a great deal of expertise.
Looking at his oeuvre, it is not surprising to hear the artist say that nothing in life interests him more than his fellow man.
