Hanneke Giezen

Her work demands your full attention, like a showpiece should. The extravagant decorations, the flashy gold and silver, the glossy glaze and the asymmetric shapes make an overwhelming impression on your emotions, your taste, your judgment. Her quest, both technically and aesthetically, for the limits of beauty, confuses the observer. The exuberant style, reminiscent of the rococo and baroque, evokes an association with the world of kitsch. Her strong basic shapes force your experience towards harmony, bringing the sense of balancing on the edge into equilibrium. Hanneke searches for unknown animals and wants to portray them before they are erased from memory. She does this in her own characteristic way, in colorful porcelain and with a plethora of glossily-glazed baroque decorations.
