The work of Kaspar Dejong is in line with the semiotic tradition, exploring and studying signs and symbols as a significant part of communications. By taking everyday signs out of their initial context and presenting them on the canvas, Dejong questions their message. He changes the meaning of signs and signals that are commonly understood and by doing so alienates us from their context and meaning.
Kaspar Dejong will start his MA at Sandberg Institute next year. He graduated from the Willem De Kooning academy in 2017 and exhibited his graduation project ‘Traffic Gaze’ at the DSM office in Sittard. His work is in the Dutch company art collections of DSM, Nationale Nederlanden(NN) and Maastricht UMC+. He is represented by Josilda da Conceicao gallery in Amsterdam.
