I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:

Color of Change
We Can't Breathe
NAACP

The Shadowplay series started as collages assembled by using pieces of found imagery that would have otherwise been discarded. The series quickly grew to include especially sourced vintage floral arrangements lending themselves to have their most catching features cut away, leaving only a shadow of the original image. In this way a new image is created with renewed equilibrium yet it's cut lines indicate a core piece has been lost.

Shadowplay is a personal project by Dutch collage artist Nicola Kloosterman.
Using vintage ikebana arrangements which focus on the importance of silence, space, form, humanity, aesthetics, and balance, Kloosterman destroys and
re-assembles these delicate arrangements to create a new image that strikes a balance between expectation and reality.
