Maartje KorstanjeRijksmuseum Twenthe
Maartje Korstanje lives in Rotterdam and works in Amsterdam and Zeeland. Korstanje creates sculptures that are often based on crises and beauty in nature, and the influence of man on this subject. Korstanje’s work is never too literal or figurative. This provides layered images that appeal to the imagination and provoke multiple interpretations. Characteristic of Korstanjes sculptures – often made of cardboard and glue – are the fascinating and crude shapes. They seem familiar at first glance, but at a closer look turn out to be something indefinable. She reveils unpredictable and sometimes dark shapes, which normally are concealed.
