Brigitte Wawoe (1939) was born in Germany, lost her heart to a man from Curacao and lived on the island for a long time. She now lives in The Netherlands but visits the island on a very regular basis. As an artist she tries to touch the viewers heart and spirit, not primarily expecting outside recognition of an existing form of nature. With 'Cause and Effect' she took her audience on a philosophical trip to figure out what is cause and what is effect in everything including art. Wawoe was trained in Germany, London and The Netherlands. She is primarily a sculptor but she also paints and likes to experiment with mixed media. As she herself puts it on her website: 'By using all the possibilities of the materials -be it stone, wood or metal-, exploiting all the forms, volumes, textures, negative spaces, even lines, I want to create a new reality.'
