jacobs and kruimer show both a #spectacular
application of their creative tools. but besides this, more or less traditional control, they are able to express their artistic vision clearly.
though sharing a linear, constructive and spatial common ground, kruimer mainly uses the straight line, while jacobs is employing more amorphous forms of growth. this contradiction promises to provide an interesting dialogue in these ' interestingtimes.
the complex paper constructions of sabine jacobs have a fragile spatiality and #radiate
an almost fairytale beauty. but a closer look reveals strong, earthly forms that originated from a precise observation of the #plantworld. the basic structure of the #sculpture
is built by bending and tying metal wire, which is then covered with transparent, oil-based paint treated, tissue paper. during the working process, sabine jacobs appropriates nature without literally depicting it. rather, she produces nature itself, which invites #associations.

gerda kruimer applies “the line” in her autonomous drawings in many ways and from different starting points: the #urbanlandscape, certain native architecture, mathematical projections, random patterns. lines become different grids that are placed in layers on top of each other. fascinated by the countless lines that make unspoken and unseen connections in the spatial whole, she usually works in series.
the emphasis in her formal language is constantly shifting because, partly due to her travels, new sources of inspiration are constantly emerging.
