Full Description

“Most people throw away foam, but like a child I see the diamond in a stone.” – Suzanne Jongmans “Flemish art back to the future.” – Washington Post. “Modern Vermeer.” – Elsevier The traditions of sculpture and costume design meet contemporary sustainability in the serene, old-master inspired photographs of interdisciplinary artist Suzanne Jongmans. For each image she designs a costume, then converts the three-dimensional images to the flat surface. She uses simple packaging materials such as bubble wrap and foam rubber to make elaborate renaissance costumes, offering a de facto commentary on the world of mass consumption. Her portraits are both beautiful and thought-provoking.
