"Rebel" by Claudia Aalderink
Aptly titled 'Rebel' this striking new piece by Claudia is challenging the conventional and daring us to change the way we look at bits of discarded wood.
Using recycled architraves and beehives, Claudia has given the old an edgy new look, with a strong design component that she has become well known for.
Dimensions: (h)500mm x (w)500mm x (d)40mm
Medium: Recycled architraves & Beehives on MDF
Claudia Aalderink is a Kihikihi based artist, originally from Holland and has lived with her family in New Zealand since 2005. She is a forerunner in her design and constantly reinventing the possibilities of her medium. Balancing the tricky combination of running a gallery (The Mandarin Tree) and creating her own works that are becoming very sought after.
Claudia has always had an interest in re-using and recycling material for artworks and in 2012 she came in contact with a large number of discarded beehives meant for firewood. Without hesitation she started exploring this new medium by disassembling them and revealing the beautiful character of the boxes in a new lease of life. “Each piece has their own story and I love the honesty of the material. I don’t hide any of the ‘scars’ created over time. They merely add to the final outcome of a piece”.
Within a reduced visual vocabulary of circles, squares, rectangles, and lines, she explores the subtlety of colour, scale, and composition creating original pieces of art.
