Artist Statement: 

The way water has been a source of inspiration and, indeed, life, has always fascinated me.

Growing up near one of the main rivers in the Netherlands, the Rhine, I saw how people connected with the water in many different ways. Needless to say, the theme of this exhibition, “Deep Waters”, intrigued me and inspired me to create this painting, “Tranquil”.

“Tranquil” sheds light on the experience of what the world is like when we submerge ourselves in water - light and sound change and become accompanied by a kind of stillness that is unique in its kind. Magic and wisdom reside in this stillness, and yet I feel that our current society is steering us away from it more than ever before, and we get lost in an ocean of thoughts. Therefore, my aim was to create a world in which the stillness, and its unique strength to shine light on what matters most, is celebrated.

Dewi Plass (1990) is a Dutch artist with a fascination for nature and a profound love for the (visual) arts that unfolded itself from an early age. Music and art provided her with a safe haven, yet she decided against attending art school and pursued an academic career in Cultural and Visual Anthropology instead, from which she graduated in 2014.

Although Dewi found great joy in putting her academic skills in to practice, there was that one other passion that had been left unexplored for quite a while: translating the intangible images and stories that she had in her mind into visible, tangible sensations that could be shared with others. This is why, in 2015, she decided to focus on her development as a full time visual artist and since then her artwork has been shown in galleries across the world.

Using acrylics as her medium, Dewi creates artworks in which animals take the centre stage within worlds that invite the viewer to let go of all that’s familiar and instead explore the unexpected.
