SPATIAL AWARENESS

Lonneke van der Palen

8th Sep 2016

Lonneke van der Palen’s vivid photographs bear witness to her almost mathematical sense of colour and design. They often encompass some sort of still-life or a portrait showing a single figure. The images tease the imagination and leave the viewer guessing what it is they are actually seeing, and perhaps even what the underlying importance is. In fact, a single image often tells an entire narrative.

Van der Palen plays with people’s experiences: recognisable elements and visual clichés are combined in such a way that onlookers are continually thrown off balance. The representation of an everyday object that is central to a photo is often so aesthetic – theatrical almost – that it summons up entirely contrasting associations and meanings.
