Berend Strik

The Netherlands, Amsterdam Galerie Fons Welters

In his work, Berend Strik (NL, 1960) examines the meaning of images. He subjects his photographs to an intensive process of re-working with fabric and thread. The stitched photographs slow down our view, and therefore intensify both image and content. Thus by partly covering his images, the artist constantly lays bare different layers (of meaning).
