With elementary materials - wood, paper, clay, tape, paint - Fleur van Dodewaard creates temporary compositions that play with the possibilities of photography, sculpture, and painting. Situated at the intersection of these disciplines, her work uses photography as the final result. Questions relating to the art object, discourses about the creative process and image making, and art historical references are fundamental to her investigations. They provide the terms of an ongoing tumbling and cross-relating of old and new images, objects, ideas, and forms.
