2015 – 2016  Project Murmurs & Babbles  | A follow up

In this new Project I want to get into the subject of modern or contemporary art, what are the elements that make art contemporary art?
And what does this mean?

A recurring designation in the History of Art, and what is its value?
Van Gogh was known as modern or in our terms contemporary because he broke with traditions, but today any artist anywhere brakes or tries to, with traditions.
Has modern or contemporary become a meaning in itself?

Reference to this subject: Rem Koolhaas on modernism.

Art reflects its time, a primary source of information.
These drawings are study’s based on Renaissance 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. Wars going on, religious uproar, sexual conflicts, economicly uncertain times. But at the same an opening up of fantastic innovative possibilities in all the important fields, such as science, print, astronomy etc.

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
