Words from the artist:
On my first visit to the Dutch island of Noord-Beveland, I gathered oyster shells that were washed up on the shores of Kats and studied them to a great depth. I was interested by the vast varieties that were washed up. Captivated by the different shapes, imperfections and colours within these little tranquil objects and wondered what sort of journey they may had been through to arrive to this place. The contrast of the smooth and coarse surfaces – a reminder of nature’s honest unvarnished beauty.
