Anneliet van Beelen Artist Bio:

A recurrent theme in my work is recycling, reuse of textile from the charity shop: sculptures made out of old blankets, paintings on curtain material from the 1970s, flippers made out of an old coat of seal fur. Used textile is often still beautiful and very much a product of its time: the design of an old towel can remind me of the smell of chlorine from my swimming days. Another recurrent theme are the human shortcomings. We poor wretches do our utmost, but we fail again and again. Often, I can laugh about this: to me, humour is a good remedy. This humour can be found in my work, especially in my drawings. I love contrasts, oppositions and therefore I like to combine things that do not belong together; there often is a collage-like element in my work.
