Natural Transfer // Levi van Veluw

by mo on Saturday, April 9, 2011

If you look at van Veluw's website, he sums up his own art practice perfectly:

"The images that I make consist of often unlogical combinations of materials, patterns, colours, forms, with my head as the only constant factor. Each element is consciously chosen so as to affect a pre-determined transformation. By playing with the value of the each material and by using them for a purpose that was not originally intended for them, I construct within the image, in a very small way, a different perspective on the world." 

These poetic silent sculptures makes us feel a little uneasy but nevertheless compels us to rethink the form and lines of the human body, and how objects we might not usually notice (such as hair) can be used to alter these images.
