Boord III

Overkleeft, Joop

  • The power of limitation and the confrontation with a dissonance in an interplay that is constantly changing. Balancing on the border between concrete and abstract.
  • "When designing images, I am primarily concerned with the relationship between forms of nature and cultural phenomena. It is of great influence to learn to 'see'. Which forms are created by water...?" (© 2013-2019-Joop Overkleeft)
