The work of Anneke Klein Kranenbarg
Anneke Klein Kranenbarg unites apparent contrasts in her work. the connection between two and three dimensionality, simplicity and complexity evokes a special visual excitement. It is in particular the connection between contrasts that fascinates her and that she expresses in her (serial) work. In her constructions she investigates basic shapes, often a cubic or rectangle. She extracts the parts from a compilation and arranges with those parts a new construction, a new shape. The material she uses to achieve this are two transparant
plexiglass plates mounted in a blank wooden profile and black threads. She tightens the threads as well up the plate at the frontside, as up the plate at the backside and in the space in between. When the spectator moves along her work, the work seems to change. Lines and surfaces slide one over the other. The work sometimes appears to be two dimensional, sometimes three dimensional. In the drawings with black thread through semi-transparant plexiglass the three dimensional element is reduced to a few millimetres. Hereby in forming the final picture the light and schadow definite the spatial aspect.

The work of Gerhard Frömel
The three dimensional objects and installations of Gerhard Frömel consist of separate components, always modelled by two and often also more planes. By changing positions the viewer can evoke optical shifts, separations and connections of planes or linear elements. In this way experiencing a multiple of shapes and illusionary spaces and varieties between two and three dimensional sensations.
Such experiences one also can have when consiously going through a city or a landscape. Every step brings about an optical change: individual buildings blend and are reduced to a front wall. Different architecture and landscape styles evidently united alltogether. Mountains show an other face... already the most miniscule step - physical and psychical - can change the view on the world enormously. It is what becomes...
