It takes a certain dedication for an artist to decide that they want to make their abstract art using photography. Or should I say, use photography to make their abstract art. Fleur Van Dodewaard is an Amsterdam-based artist whose striking Sun Set series caught my eye.
Born in 1983, Fleur studied Theatre at the University of Amserdam, and Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, before enrolling in a photography program at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, where she graduated in 2010.
Her images are studies in geometry and color, all benefitting from the unique way that photography captures subtle textures and gradations. It makes you wonder, at first glance, how she created these still lives, and how something so simple and similar can result in so many interesting photographs using the same shape as it's subject.
