Rotterdam, Netherlands based Milou Maass’ work seems delicate, yet powerful. Characterized by fashion, hair textures, realism and surrealism, organic and geometric shapes, she manages to create intense illustrations. Maass mainly draws with pen and pencil, and has become more and more interested in typography, integrating her new passion into her more recent work.

WANDERING COLLAGES BY NICOLA KLOOSTERMAN

Netherlands based Nicola Kloosterman creates collages using scraps of collected paper and fragments of images that speak to her. She is especially interested in shape and color, the female body, hands, botanicals, and vintage printed material. Kloosterman likes to use a lot of negative space and her images are always quite airy and light.

She likes to think of herself as an explorer and a wanderer. Nicola thinks the process of finding images in the torrent of our daily visual communications, carefully excavating them and them recycling them into a new context and narrative is exciting as she never knows where she may end up. Each collage begins with a single image or piece of paper. She then slices, combines, reduces and composes until a new visual narrative emerges on her paper reflecting the incomprehensible, the invisible, the immeasurable and the infinite.

THE PERISTAL SINGUM: A GIANT ART LABYRINTH

The Peristal Singum, which will be shown at the Aus Berlin Festival in Tilburg on the 28th of November, is a larger-than-life installation that allows visitors to walk, climb, and crouch through an artsy wonderland containing over ten different chambers.

The labyrinth was such a huge success in Berlin, the curators were forced to build a bigger version. Even after that, people still had to queue up for over three hours to get lost in the labyrinth.

The artist behind Peristal Singum is the German Tim Henrik Schneider. Painting is what Schneider normally does , but he felt a ‘normal’ exposition at the museum wouldn’t do his latest project any justice.

“Peristal Singum is a metaphor of the human digestive system. Nowadays people don’t take the time to process art. They consume it like junk food instead. Art can be confusing and has the power to alter your assumptions. I want people to discover that feeling in the Peristal. [The] physical experience of art is the only way people will start to self-reflect.”

Collages of Ashkan Honarvar

Individualism 1 605x840 Collages of Ashkan Honarvar Iran collage Ashkan Honarvar

To be honest, we are just guessing that these pieces are collage (of course they look like collage) because the website is in German. But this is what we were able to break down for you:

The Iranian-born Ashkan Honarvar (Ignant reported) is engaged in his new series of collages with democracy and individualism. He denounces his work in concrete terms the relentless personality to harvesting in China. Was inspired by artists living in the Netherlands by quoting Mao: ‘We should oppose democratic individualism with democratic collectivism.’

Paper art by Bert Simons

Posted from The Citrus Report

Bert Simons is pretty damn fresh with the paper. Yes, these sculptures are all made with paper. Or as Bert writes:

3 dimensional pseudo realistic paper portraits and sculptures. These are papercraft sculptures made in the same way as the familiar papercraft houses and animals

Okay, not bad. We like this work a lot. We guess this is what people do in the Netherlands, may cool art like this.
