Yenny Cocq

"I am a total romantic! I chose to create figurative bronze sculpture to convey romantic longings, love, and emotions through my couples sculptures. My collectors are loving, happy people that share my work with their loved ones. My little people become a centerpiece in the collector's home. I can't imagine a more fulfilling art career than being part of your life."

Yenny Cocq's figurative sculptures represent one of nature's most complex and beautiful forms: the human body. Her work refines the human figure to basic, almost geometric forms while portraying an emotional idea or story. She is giving life to her subjects by capturing their innermost emotions while expressing her own romantic longings.

Yenny Cocq starts each piece in clay, wax, or metal. The figures are then cast in bronze using the lost wax casting technique, in which a mold is created from the original artwork, then casting waxes are created for the foundry to cast. The artist applies the patina, the final coloration, using various traditional patina acids and formulas.

Yenny Cocq is a master printmaker, but she has always created jewelry and small sculptures inspired by Danish design. She has worked with her uncle, master goldsmith Berghoff, in Hamburg, Germany. For the last 10 years, she has worked in small bronze sculpture. Various professional bronze casting foundries in Denmark, Germany, and the USA were instrumental in the process and realization of her current body of work.
