Originally educated as a painter, my work gradually shifted towards multimedia installations. My current practice includes painting, sculpture, drawing, video and performance.
I’m interested in the correlation between our inner processes and our physical body interacting with the world. I consider the body to be a carrier for the individual; a shell where experiences and sensory perceptions manifest themselves and are archived. With my work I aim to find a form for the human experiences that escape grip and language. Recurring themes are the vulnerability of the body and mind, temporality and the encounter between extremities like presence-absence, internal-external, solid-soft, earthly-spiritual.
During This Art Fair I will make a duo presentation together with Kevin Nieuwenhuijs. Although we have been a couple since art school, we don’t often exhibit together. Our practices are very different but have lately been growing towards each other. We both explore the boundaries of painting, by questioning the illusion of the flat surface, escaping the frame and walking the line between painting and sculpture.
We will show a selection of our paintings that search for visual connections and contrasts. Additionally, we are planning to develop an installation that investigates the borders between matter and nothingness, illusion and reality.www.evaspierenburg.nl
