Seet van Hout (1957)


Schermafbeelding 2020-10-22 om 16.51.10

Threads, rags and tissues, these combined are part of the installations and “paintings” by Seet van Hout. These works are far more complex than one would think when seen for the first time. Hard labour, sewing, broidering and painting the tissues that brought all together, make a new work of art. In many cases a very large work which needs enough space to be admired. Nature and abstract forms are used for the composition and because of the method of “contruction” it must take some time before the work is finished. I noticed that her works are in the largest public and corporate collections, but because of theiir size you seldom come accross one which is for show…. a pity because thes colorful works must be admired by many than the occasional spectator.
