Blow: Maria Roosen

Posted: March 23rd, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Art | Tags: , , , , , , , | No Comments »

Last week, I randomly stumbled upon a gallery opening and decided to take a peek inside  I ended up discovering some intriguing pieces.  Gallery Fons Welter has a new art opening of abstract nature based glass sculptures by artist Maria Roosen from 13 Mar 2010 – 24 Apr 2010. The gallery is located on Bloemstraat 140, 1016 lj Amsterdam.

Maria Roosen’s works are produced by what is given – natural elements, such as trees and the effect of the material, glass – and what she adds as an artist – human elements, manipulation, and imagination. The resulting interaction, between the givens, influence, and spontaneity, comes into play in Maria Roosen’s works as soon as the glass-blower fills them with breath, by blowing.

Niet Normaal

Posted: March 3rd, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Art | Tags: , , | No Comments »

What is normal and who decides this? This is the central question surrounding the exhibit : Niet Normaal on display in Amsterdam until March 7th.

As stated on their website, “Niet Normaal questions normality in a society that makes perfection the standard, in which market en economy create new social service groups and (bio) technological developments not only create chances but also limit them.”

Having been to the show last week, I was really impressed with the work on exhibition and the educational aspect behind most of the pieces. From video installations, to interactive works and life size photography, the international artists from all over the globe took the theme to heart and made the audience question this ambiguous concept of ‘normality.’
