Moving Through Contrast : Suzanne Jongmans, Hardback Book


"Most people throw away foam, but like a child I see the diamond in a stone." - Suzanne Jongmans"Flemish art back to the future." - Washington Post. "Modern Vermeer." - ElsevierThe traditions of sculpture and costume design meet contemporary sustainability in the serene, old-master inspired photographs of interdisciplinary artist Suzanne Jongmans.

For each image she designs a costume, then converts the three-dimensional images to the flat surface.

She uses simple packaging materials such as bubble wrap and foam rubber to make elaborate renaissance costumes, offering a de facto commentary on the world of mass consumption.

Her portraits are both beautiful and thought-provoking.
