Cecilia Vissers

NL - 1964

Cecilia Vissers heeft gedurende een carrière van meer dan drie decennia veel geëxperimenteerd met abstracte en conceptuele kunstpraktijken. Zij is afwisselend werkzaam in metaalsculptuur, fotografie en druktechnieken terwijl haar kunst verwijst naar de wilde landschappen van Ierland en Schotland. Vissers' gebruik van industriële materialen en technieken hebben, evenals haar overkoepelende benadering van de kunstpraktijk, precedenten in het constructivisme.

 

ENG

Over a career spanning more than three decades, Cecilia Vissers has experimented widely with abstract and conceptual art practices. Working variously in metal sculpture, photography and printing techniques, Vissers' art references to the wild landscapes of Ireland and Scotland. Her employment of industrial materials and techniques, as well as her overarching approach to her art practice, have precedents in constructivism.
