“The classical pin-up tastefully embodies female sexuality. I like how the sensual female form can symbolise both softness and strength, radiates both power and vulnerability.” says Hanneke Treffers, aka Handiedan, a 36-year-old Dutch female collage artist based in Amsterdam. “My work is about the past, present and future and also about balance. My collages are treasure troves of symbols… I collect images every day that I fall in love with. I overload myself with images. Then, I start collaging until the artwork is almost three-dimensional and I add some final touches, sketching and doodling on the piece.”
On view until April 25th.
