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.

A follow up on my investigation into Renaissance art and contemporary artists who reflect(ed) on them. View all the works at

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.

Art reflects its time, a primary source of information.

These drawings and works are multilayered and 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.

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