Hannah Streefkerk

Profile

Hannah Streefkerk’s work relates to the passing of time in nature and to the cyclical nature of time. The works can be seen as visual metaphors for our shared responsibility of protecting nature and lessening our impact on the environment. At the same time they prompt us to contemplate our natural surroundings. To notice things, to stop once in a while. Time and the fact that everything is temporary are aspects of life that the environment and every human have in common. The lush green foliage of summer turns into falling autumn leaves which in turn become a source of nutrients for next spring’s growing season.

Through her interventions in nature itself, in forests, on fields and riverbanks, and her sculptural works, 2-dimensional works and installations inspired by natural elements, she delicately illustrates this passing of time, growth and decay and the continuum of life. In most of her works Streefkerk uses textile techniques as embroidery and crocheting, and she exhibits over the whole world.
