Inge Prins van Wijngaarden,Founder, atelier depARTure Parade Paleis Soestdijk.
Dutch contemporary artist (1979).
My artworks are my reflections on life, the way I experience it and how I see it around me. In my work I reflect themes that concern me: from essential issues to daily trifles, often with a touch of humor. My sources of inspiration are nature, people and the properties of materials. Sustainability is the foundation of everything I make. I stand for a conscious approach to the environment and that is why I only work with environmentally friendly or recycled materials. Because these materials are very diverse, I use different techniques to bring them to life. Intensive material research is therefore an important part of my work process.
In addition, the research into the many properties of cardboard is also part of what I like to show in my work. After I progressed to use the cardboard as a painting canvas. After that I was able to use the specific “ripple” properties as an artistic starting point. For both abstract and figurative work.
