Artist Bio

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.
