Dutch artist and fashion designer Anneloes Brunt (1985) creates abstract collage art with elements from vintage and discarded photographs, books and magazines. Sustainability and the repurpose of materials are essential in her work.
Her artworks closely relate to her background in fashion. The play of textures and quality of the images she uses intrigue her and create an aesthetic feeling of rawness and elegance.
“My process is intuitive, I have an archive of books and cut shapes that I bring together in a sense that feels right and new. The shapes and textures themselves lead me to a final artwork. I do not always assemble the pieces together immediately, I construct compositions until I have found a desired form. Occasionally I use other materials such as pens or acrylic paint to interact with the paper elements.”
She studied fashion design at the ArtEZ University of the Arts in Arnhem (NL) and graduated in 2008. Currently she lives and works in Amsterdam.
