Artists: Iris Schomaker & Joel Morrisson
Iris Schomaker (1973) is known for her large expressive works made from water- and oil paint on paper. Schomaker is interested in private moments. She depicts people in different kinds of rest poses, people who are not aware of the beholder’s eye. There is also a tension between the two-dimensional paper and the three-dimensional people, referring to Japanese and Chinese art prints.
The American sculptor Joel Morrison (1976) makes polished sculptures out of stainless steel. He combines all sorts of opposite shapes, such as a classic bust, anvils and a croissant. He refers to popular culture and a new context is given to objects we use on a daily basis. His works are full of humour, but also invite us to reflect.
