Some of things people have said about Bart's work

***

From Blogspot.com: A month ago I blogged about not finding the right birthday present for T. After much research and random surfing, I came across this American artist who does wire art works by pure chance. Bart Soutendijk is an artist who creates drawings with wires and he took custom orders via his website. read more

Here is a piece of art from Bart Soutendijk, a local artist. He is donating a piece to a charity auction that my wife runs every year. I saw his stuff and thought that a sculpture featuring cards or suits might be cool. He then showed me this piece. His art is wire wall hangings that are powder coated. This piece is 31 x 55 inches, but he said he could make it in other sizes. The poker theme is kind of subtle, but I think it's cool. Read full post

When I read Bart Soutendijk’s description of his wire drawings I knew I wanted to share it. Seems to me that this way of thinking and acting – stripping away the things that don’t convey the uniqueness of our personality or our art – can serve us in making our lives sing as much as making our art sing. read the full aritcle

Bart, thank you again for your inspiration, creativity, and customer service. It has been a pleasure.

Got it.
I really like it.
 
Since I've never seen your work in person, I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to get.  The wire is thicker and stronger than I expected (I don't know one guage from another), and it sits further from the wall than I expected.  I do remember reading something on your site about the shadows created by the wire.  Now i get it.  ;-)  And I really like the powder coating.
 
Attached is a photo. 
It's right below a window.  (may sound like an odd place for it, but the window is high on the wall.  If you're sitting, then this piece is eye level.)

The mural was delivered on Friday – intact and ready to hang.  I followed your lead in terms of the layout and got it up on the wall yesterday (which was a challenge in itself).  The mural transforms the room – I am impressed by your workmanship, and artistic flair and quite satisfied with the purchase – and everybody loves it – especially the “out of the box” aspect of it all.  (I was tempted to have the runners circling the room – all four walls.)  Thank you!  Will send pictures.

The sculpture arrived today and from what I can see it is fantastic.  I don't want to unwrap it all out of the plastic because I want to protect it until I give it to my husband.

We received the art work. It is beautiful.

I was still here this morning when Fedex came.  They are perfect.  Thank you so much.  When I get back from our trip, I will take a picture and email it to you.  I have them over-lapping each other,  looks totally different, then when they are alone.Thanks again

Gracias!  They are wonderful.

Hi Bart,  We got it!  It turned out great. It is exactly what we wanted and we are very pleased with your fabulous work.

I received the piece a few minutes ago and it looks great.

I got it all mounted, and it looks great. Sage green
probably isn't the best wall color background for it,
but oh well, it still looks good. When i have the
kitchen light on, it casts long sideways shadows, but
that's not a big deal at all. Turn off that light, and
it looks perfect. I can just move it to a different
wall if i was that concerned about it.

I wanted to let you know that the sculpture you did of Basie was a huge hit!  Everyone was amazed, especially my husband.  Attached is a picture of the sculpture in its new home with my husband.
 
Many thanks and happy new year!

Hi Bart-We received the sculpture and it is already on the wall!
My husband was surprised and we are both very happy with it.
My daughter knew it was her and Papa!
Thank you.

I received the piece a few minutes ago and it looks great.  I’ll log-in to escrow.com and get the payment headed your way.  Thanks.  I’ll send you a photo when we get it mounted in our new office.

Hey Bart,  
We received the package just fine.  I love it even more than I thought I would!  I love the shadow it casts on the wall. We are still trying to decide the best place to put it.  If you are ever in Boulder, come by and see it displayed. I think your work would go over quite well at our art festivals here, Thanks so much for sharing your talent.  

Wishing you and your family all the best for the holidays!

Hi Bart,--I received the sculpture on Tuesday, meant to get back to you sooner but
been so busy at work.  I LOVE IT!!!, It's life size and I can see me in
the sculpture.  Hopefully in the near future I would like to get a
sculpture of my son, he is 6'3 and 15 years old.  Maybe by the time he
graduates high school or sooner.

Thank you so very much.

 Dear Mr. Soutendijk,
      I am in your e-mail list and have been receiving e-mails from time to time of your latest artworks.  I go through each one of them and I am just speechless and in great awe of your talent. 
      Looking forward to see your next work.

I received the package this morning and I LOVE the piece. Everyone in the office immediately recognized it as my son, and that’s what makes it fun. It is very personal.  I look forward to hanging it when I get home. My business partner is saying he wants to also do something fun for his house, so I’ll keep you posted.
What’s the best to way hang it? Should I put the nails in the sections where the wire meets the wall?
Thanks a lot.

Hi Bart:
Donna & I are both very pleased with the result!
We really enjoy your style and what you do.
A couple of photos attached.
Thanks for doing the project for us.
Bill
