Imagine being outside, watching the sunset, feeling the warmth on your skin.
Or walking in a lush forest, sunlight reflecting on damp leaves.
It is the essence of moments like these that Sanne Terweij (Amsterdam, 1984) tries to capture in her works.
Guided by colour and texture she experiments with different gradients and hues to capture the feeling of a fleeting moment and to investigate the effect a colour can have on the psyche.
With her roots in creative entrepreneurship as a decorator/artist for hospitality and film industry, she has spent years specialising in aging and patina techniques.
She currently focuses on the use of metals such as brass, copper and aluminium. Their reflective surfaces constantly shimmer and change with the moving light and the position of the viewer.
In exploring the oxidative properties of her materials, she sets to work with various chemical processes and interventions to create mesmerizing colour schemes.
The ever-changing process of oxidation, in combination with the hundreds of hand cut shapes that make up her works, ensure that no work is ever the same.
Transition is a common thread, and her process reveals her deep-rooted love for old school crafts.
“I feel that the little imperfections you see when something is handmade, really give each piece its own character”
Her wall sculptures have already found their ways to collectors and galleries worldwide, and she has recently received the Rising Talent Award by Maison&Objet in 2022.
Her preference for unconventional materials and her often bold use of colour really make her works stand out.
