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).
Berend Strik has exhibited at Galerie Fons Welters and Jack Tilton, New York. His recent group exhibitions include: Forever Young? Fotografie en vergankelijkheid, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam; Rendez Vous, Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem; The Raft. Art is (not) Lonely, Mu.Zee, Oostende, Belgium.
