Ton Zwerver

The Netherlands, Amsterdam C&H gallery

Ton Zwerver's work solidifies moments, silent witnesses of a process in which light, material and the specific location, atmosphere or context are definable elements. Personal story lines, daily encounters or philosophical considerations among others fall in with the objects during this process.

These sculptural interventions are by definition always under construction, temporarily experiments frozen in time. In that aspect his way of working differs from more traditional forms of sculpture as it allows for larger improvisations and associations.

Ton Zwerver does not limit himself to a specific theme or topic but merely observe, create an intermediate conclusion in the form of a ‘photo as a capture or snapshot’. The photos are constructed captures of time, place and action staged in a moment and mediated by a photograph.

With this process, something virtual is created, bringing real elements/objects together in a moment of time.
