tactile gestures

Can shade and shape reinforce each other’s presence? That’s the question Jeroen van de Gruiter sets out to answer with a series of cast objects which marry the two factors in their own way. The triptych’s individual characters emphasize distinctive surface treatments which play with density, proportion and structure. Resin – achromatic and transparent without external input – is used as a carrier for colour, letting the hue and form appear as one. The material’s qualities allow Van de Gruiter to seemingly set colour free in space, giving it a more fluid and unbound appearance.
