Art reflects its time, a primary source of information.
These drawings are study’s based on 16th century paintings and refer to a historical concept. Somehow they reflect an atmosphere of apocalypse.
Whether religious, sexual or political, they are part of the timeframe then and the timeframe now.

With these study’s I want to connect 16th century art with Contemporary art.

Riedstra has studied applied arts in Tel Aviv and The Hague, as well as M.A. Scenography at St Martins London, and completed her masters in Seville, Spain. She lives in the Netherlands
