#Tag Portraits – 2018.

A series of 13 works on paper

My visual comment on photo’s, taken by another artist, of all kind of victims. Deciding to make these portraits anonymous.  Looking now from a whole different perspective, one can also reverse the roles, ‘who is the victim and who is the perpetrator’.
A psychological game almost, intriguing.

This anonymity made me decide to transform these images back to who they might have been by concentrating on what I can detect and give them back a face.

#Tag Portraits – Transition 2018.

My visual comment on anonymous photo’s of victims and perpetrators and the knowledge that anybody can be in the reverse role.

I try to transform these images by concentrating on what I can detect and give them back a face.

´Who are Thou Lord' mixed media on paper 65X 50 cm 2014 - 2015

> Riedstra’s themes in her painting- and  drawing projects are always about estrangements and the influence of  human behaviour on society.

> Art reflects its time, a primary source of information.

Project Every Day A Drawing. These works are based on the Renaissance period. They refer to a historical concept and the contemporary world we live in. Somehow they reflect an atmosphere of apocalypse and hope.
Whether religious, sexual or political, they are part of the timeframe then and the timeframe now.

With these works I want to connect Renaissance 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

To be named refugees as part of anonymous numerous groups that are wandering around in Europe and elsewhere around the world is one thing.
To be able to give these people a face is another.
This as an artist is my small contribution.
