Maarten Vrolijk, Sakura TRP 21012, 2020, Hand-blown and sculpted glass.

Many small details evoke the unexpected in these glass works by artist Maarten Vroijlik. There is a new sense of harmony between shadows, colours, and the artist’s skills. Since his childhood, Maarten has been fascinated by nature and the so-called ordinary things, which we pass by every day, but which become objects of fascination for him. He remembers the cherry tree in his parents’ home, which blossomed and then turned into a shower of petals before bearing fruit. This show will notably influence his work in the Sakura series. What interests him is not so much to imitate nature as to question a new form of image, where his fascination becomes tangible and is embodied in another reality, bringing a new creation to the existing.
Maarten Vrolijk, born in Oss in 1966 and living in Amsterdam, considers it important to create on the simple, unequivocal nature of an object. His artistic language, whether in his work with blown glass or painting, is unusual because he plays with shapes, colors and materials in a non artificial way. He evokes the unexpected. Many of his works have been acquired or exhibited in international museums including the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Groninger Museum.
