AnneMarie van Splunter,
1962, Vlaardingen, the Netherlands
AnneMarie’s work is conceptual, monumental, poetic and can be either ephemeral, temporarily existing installations (e.g. an evaporating water landscape, plinths of sugar) or permanent sculpture in the public realm (e.g. sculptural playground, parkbench, commissioned, among others, by the Dutch Government Buildings Agency).
Meticulous use of materials like water, sugar, salt, concrete, glass, steel or bamboo appeals to the spectators sensory perception and might evoke an idea of lightness and serenity.
Characteristic is an almost architectural approach, an ordering by a mathematical pattern or module, while the curves in the finished sculpture clearly recall biomorphic forms.
