Natasja van der Meer (1969) studied sculptural art at the Nieuwe Akademie in Utrecht. She likes to use different kinds of material, to express her vision on modern life. In her work, Van der Meer regularly incorporates existing objects to create iconic images, often with a sense of humour.
Recently Van der Meer started to use beads as three dimensional pixels to create hanging sculptures. With admirable precision she puts all elements together to create a clear recognisable image. Through the use of different techniques, the artist ensures that no discrepancy arises between the object and the final enlarged artwork. Keywords are simplicity and clarity, and no unnecessary details are added to the artwork. This simplicity and unambiguous expression make the works of Van der Meer not only accessible, but contribute to the experience of aesthetic enjoyment of her art.
