Love the unusual and highly fashionable collages of Dutch based artist and printmaker Nicola Kloosterman. She is hosting her first solo show at Galerie Oosterbosch in Amsterdam opening on the 8th of January.
"I create collage using scraps of collected paper and fragments of images that speak to me. I am especially interestend in shape and color, the female body, hands, botanicals, and vintage printed material. I like to use a lot of negative space and my images are always quite airy and light. I like to think of myself as an explorer and a wanderer. The proces of finding images in the torrent of our daily visual communications, carefully excavating them and them recycling them into a new context and narrative is always exiting as I never know where I may end up. I try to stay in artistic shape by making as much as I can, I share my proces over at ohdecollage."
