We are pleased to announce an exhibition The Edge by Maria Schilder on March 23(Sat) & 24(Sun) , as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Maria Schilder is an artist specialised in sculptures and objects, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She graduated from Amsterdam University of Arts.
She has exhibited most frequently in the Netherlands but also in England, France, Estland and two times in Japan. She visited Japan twice before. She used those occasions to learn more about Japanese culture and art, traditional as well as modern.
The sculptures she creates, are a result of experimenting with materials and shapes. Her aim is to express feeling and experience in a concentrated way. She is always looking for materials which can express this feelings and experience as specific as possible. She tries to suggest softness, sensuality and intimacy in her works.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
My Rock clings onto the earth
Or will it slip down eventually?
