Dutch artist, Suzan Drummen creates sparkling floor installations using an array of individually placed mirrors, crystals, chromed metal, optical glass and precious stones. In each of her artworks the thousands of objects are placed and stacked by hand and sit completely loose during the exhibition.
Most of her circular patterns grow exponentially out of each other making 3D carpets and walls, part of a ceilings, and that alter the space and reflect the light in all directions to examine the idea of illusion and optical effect exploring beauty which is the main idea of her work. A sensory experience, and visually stimulating, the glittering installations play with the architecture of the space climbing up walls and sweeping across the surfaces.
From a long distance all you would see is symmetrical patterns that looks like a decorative rug. But with a closer look you will see complex individual parts – details resulting from the skilled craftsmanship that goes into each art piece. Also Drummen on her artworks places glossy element loosely on the floor and make the artwork vulnerable.
