A play of perception

The perception of colour has everything to do with the way a surface catches the light – something that changes constantly throughout the day. Fascinated by the play of light on surrounding objects and vice versa, Jeroen van de Gruijter adds a playful dimension of his own. With surprising layers and relief in his tapestry, he changes the perspective and tricks the eye. Fabrics come alive with seams that light up, colour gradients suggest architectonic structures, and fillings emphasise shape. An additional series of semi-transparent glass vessels shift in hue, revealing their inner secrets as time goes by.
