White Crab Spider (framed) by Janna van Hasselt
Medium: silkscreen on digital print
Size: 865 x 1255mm (framed)
These works explore camouflage and mimicry through the blending and masking of forms, colour and pattern. Van Hasselt is attracted to an excess of juxtaposing forms and simultaneous contrasts. The idea of harmony and disparity both being present in a piece intrigues and delights her. By pushing the inter-play of surface and substrate, the resulting images marry the flat with the dimensional and function like skins or membranes.
