c Riedstra Artist Bio:
Riedstra - contemporary artist - works at painting and drawing projects + installations. Point of departure: estrangement in a large context, related to the world of today, some projects in a historical context. About Riedstra: a working process. Over the years, Riedstra has developed her own unique style. In the movement of her brushstrokes and drawing movements the viewer clearly recognises the hand of the experienced artist. The apparent alertness of her topics adds great value to her work. With provocative ease, she communicates the ambience of her work to the public. Riedstra is a keen observer: She eliminates the superfluous to reach the core essence. Through endless wandering, taking photos of images that draws her interest and intense research she acquires new and exciting experiences. This process provides us with an insight into her method of working. The power of her work lies in the ability to incorporate and transform the here and now, often in the context of (art) history. Again and again, Riedstra takes her audience along on a confrontational journey beyond authentic elements, which through their individual importance start to lead a life of their own on the canvas, paper or other materials. In doing so, she avoids any compromise, which results in an intense directness for the viewer. That way Riedstra undoubtedly paints and draws from a renewed contemporary perspective. Thus, her work maintains tension and originality and yet radiates tranquillity.
