Boon Elke Andreas - Baby with dots
2013 - Pencil and latex on paper - H 26 x W 43 cm
Visual artist Elke Andreas Boon (Ghent, Belgium) makes photos, drawings, video work and music. With this she builds installations in which she confronts different works. Elke Andreas Boon's oeuvre has a fundamental duality. She shows the vulnerable and the rebellious. As an artist, she has the power to expose those many hard-to-determine human sensitivities and elevate them to an aesthetic awareness. Her work combines a poetic and escapist imagination with a raw vision of our condition humaine. There is no perfection in the world that Elke Andreas Boon creates. It is a world of desperation and imperfection, but that is precisely why it is beauty and a sense of freedom.
