I grew up in a family that loved Native American art – from basketry to pottery to large beaded works – our family room was full of these pieces on display and we regularly visited the American southwest to learn how different groups of people lived and how they created their art. It seems as [...]
I love materials that have some translucency and those works that looks like they’ve been pulled and stretched like pizza dough. When I came across Peter Gentenaar’s paper sculptures all those loves were combined. That’s paper! And it’s also 120×140 centimeters – not small at all!

She usies instinct to form her vessels and creates, as she says, “inside/outside surrealistic dramas.” The above is a close up of the piece entitled, “Translucid Remains” – [...]
