About the Artwork:
“I’ve always loved alianation, to daydream. As a child I made my own theories about things and how they worked. And how the world works. At the art academy I refound this and was able to fuse this in my work.
I combine shapes, animals, machines, things to create new logic or illogical beings/things. Humor is very important in this I feel for it opens the mind in a very pleasant way. It opens people to look beyond the obvious.
I want to invite people to think, to wander like a child. To look at the world with an open view. Things are not always what they seem. In this world today, seemingly ruled by fear people should not run with leaders who hate and spread fear. People should think for themselves, for they decide what their world looks like. That is what I want to invite people to see. Think for yourself, and dont let anyone tell you not to. – Redmer Hoekstra
