Emotional Ballast is a recent sculpture by Jos Van Hulsen which explores the emotional balancing act of being an artist. Based loosely on the ballast of a ship, the work is about feelings of vulnerability as an artist. The need for a strong inner sense of self when your work is constantly validated (or not) by others.
Jos Van Hulsen has been working as a sculptural designer for over 30 years. His work is found in prominent private and public collections throughout Australia.
