SORT BY Relevancy
Hilde Lambrechts is a Canadian artist living in Ottawa.
I draw and I sculpt in a variety of media, depending on the subject matter as well as the concept I want to communicate with the viewer.
My series of pen and ink drawings (2008-2010) is aimed to ignite consciousness about the current problems we face as a race, from our disconnection with the earth we live on to the social, environmental and economic consequences of our actions. My black on white 'think' drawings are meant as wake-up calls. I emphasize the dominance of the human species with a bold outline of the human figure. It holds an accumulation of small, detailed drawings of associations I have with the chosen theme. The accompanying word sketch/poem guide the viewer through my train of thought and completes the pungent message that change is needed.
My sculptures in both stone (2000-2009) and clay (since 2009) present a window to the natural world in the broadest sense. When sculpting the human figure, my medium of choice is stone, which I shape into a massive being, frequently lacking arms and legs, and its dominant appearance further emphasized by long robes. In contrast, I choose clay to express the fragility of our ecosystem and the struggle for survival.
My stone work is characterized by strong lines and simple shapes with few details, but with contrast between polished and non-polished areas and/or different chisel techniques. My ceramic work however is more complex and detailed, often with textured surfaces and matte finishes in a bold colour.

"Of course, he carried it a bit too far. He thought that every windmill was a giant. That's insane. But, thinking that they might be... Well, all the best minds used to think the world was flat. But, what if it isn't? It might be round. And bread mold might be medicine. If we never looked at things and thought of what they might be, why, we'd all still be out there in the tall grass with the apes."
While the 1971 movie starring George C. Scott and Joanne Woodward from which the above excerpt has been taken reflects a Don Quixote sentiment, the reference to looking at things and thinking of what they "might be," is the starting point for entrepreneurial success.
Being able to take positive and effective action on one's vision represents the difference between the "what could have been" axiom and the realization of one's true potential.
According to the new "Meet The Giants" web site's founders, "by surrounding ourselves with people who have already been there and done it we realize that just about every entrepreneurial success story in existence is littered with tales of self-doubt, insurmountable obstacles, fear and adverse circumstances.
Imagine having dinner with over 100 of the world’s top entrepreneurs and tap into the way they think and act, find out about the strategies they have used and continue to use to achieve the success they enjoy and extract that wisdom and knowledge into your own One Page Giant’s Masterplan."
"There is" the Meet The Giants contend, "nowhere else on earth that you can stand on the shoulders of giants every week of the year without paying huge sums of money." Meet The Giants has created such a venue, making knowledge and insight accessible to all.
In the spirit of our "Knowledge Is Power" interview series, I am pleased to welcome Giant facilitator Hilde Makkinje to discuss the "vision" behind her own organization.
