´Who are Thou Lord’ mixed media on paper 65X 50 cm
from Renaissance project project everydayadrawing 2014 – 2015
The title refers to all those who got caught up in the chaotic and troubled world right now………………….
> Riedstra’s themes in her painting- and drawing projects are about estrangements and its influence on behaviour in society.
> Art reflects its time, a primary source of information.
Project Every Day A Drawing. These works are based on the Renaissance period. They refer to a historical concept and the contemporary world we live in. Somehow they reflect an atmosphere of apocalypse and also of hope.
Whether religious, sexual or political, they are part of the timeframe then and the timeframe now.
With these works I want to connect Renaissance art with Contemporary art.
