Guido van der Werve

Guido van der Werve Work from his oeuvre. “Dutch artist Guido van der Werve makes the kind of films Caspar David Friedrich might have dreamt up if he had had a sense of humour and access to a camera.

Surface Poetry

Surface Poetry at Boetzelaer|Nispen. “Today, the digital screen has become the predominant surface for engaging with visual content.

Anouk Kruithof

Anouk Kruithof  Work from her oeuvre “Anouk Kruithof considers photography as a starting point of infinite possibilities. Her method is interdisciplinary and mostly idea based. She inventively explores ideas of the picture plane, the image, and the materiality and physicality of the medium of photography. Her work is at once seductive while simultaneously critically deconstructing […]

Pim Leenan

Pim Leenen Work from his/her oeuvre. “Compared with the existence of space or matter, the existence of time is always something fragile, something paradoxical, as though it is not quite real.

Csilla Klenyanszki

Csilla Klenyanszki Work from X Marks the Spot. “X MARKS THE SPOT” is an epilogue or even more, a new chapter that follows my graduation project “My logic is gone or did I just find it? …because nothing is more abstract than our own reality.” It is all about looking for the hidden possibilities related […]

Elspeth Diederix

Elspeth Diederix Work from her oeuvre. “…Diederix is playful and inventive in her visualisation of images but strict and almost mathematical in constructing her compositions.
