Reliefs by Alexandra Roozen

These "Reliefs" by Alexandra Roozen are mesmerizing! I really like their minimalist style and careful composition, despite this, they provoke in the viewer a very strong visual effect, introducing him/her into different impresive perspectives. All the series is made from the same material and size, silicone rubber and 50x40 cm, 2011. See more;

"Alexandra Roozen's works are full of surprises. They demand physical proximity, to be looked at up-close, scrutinized. They absorb your vision, invite you to discover emerging planes, distinguish lines and follow contours. The observer is challenged to view the work again and again from various perspectives. This is mainly a result of the fact that, in order to research and analyze the properties and limitations of materials, Roozen explores the expressive power of forms and textures, of sizes and proportions. It is, however, the intense manner in which she is able to render spatial illusion that determines the magic of her work." - Netty van de Kamp
