Van Dijk: ‘Always that urge to make something beautiful, something wayward. Stimulated by my desire to look further. Appearances deceive, nothing is as it seems…
I love developing seemingly crazy ideas into something stylish, with a sense of beauty. The research and experimentation that precedes a creation is important, because that is when I experience the freedom of mind to think unbounded, transverse and connecting. I work with unusual materials, such as mandarin peel, eggshells, panty liners, cabbage leaves, latex, shells, orchids, feathers, fish skin and seaweed.
