Monique Kwist Artist

The Digital Portfolio of Monique Kwist Artist

Monique Kwist (1965) Dutch Artist,
NB For those who are looking for Qi Gong / Taichi lessons, please copy this link to the other website. https://qigongtraining.jouwweb.nl/

About this website:
A rough overview of documentation, an archive of images.
In general it is better to see this on a pc screen. The website design is of pre-mobile times, like digital archeology. Simple, enough I hope.
In 'various' a few texts about the work can only be read on large screen.
Please contact when having questions.

Prices are not mentioned, of course the work is for sale; it will be wonderful in your own surroundings; if you are interested don't hesitate to contact.

About my work:
With sensitivity for material and concept I try to keep my work experimental, not focused on one discipline. You can find 3 dimensional objects, photography, work on paper etc. I started with architectural objects, pouring materials. I keep a keen eye on physical textures and space in the work.
The process using one technique influences the other. Like pouring, making moulds is comparable to printmaking.
Travelling to remote places influence my work. Recently experiences of walking in natural reserves and volcanic islands (La Palma, Japan, Cape Verde) re-appear in my studio. General subjects: architecture, a certain void, light, landscape and orientation. Used seals get new life, left-over pieces are sometimes better then designed ones. Negative and possitive can be treated as evenly interesting.

An artwork can be a space in itself you might be able to enter. Sometimes I observe it as a model. Reduction is a very important part of the process.
The ongoing project now is making embossments in Asian paper.

I hope you enjoy looking around in this website. Be welcome to visit my studio, on appointment..
