What is important now is to recover our sensesSusan Sontag
Maria Roosen (1957, the Netherlands) explores forms in glass and water colours; both congealed movement and carrier of a flowing form. Roosen sees her sculptures as “Tools for Feelings”. They are utensils, intended to represent feelings. In turn, these feelings create a stream of thoughts of subjects such as growth, bloom, fertility, love and death. The creative process and craftsmanship are just as important to Roosen as the final result.
