Maaike Anne Stevens

As a starting point for my work I use eternal, omni-present forms, that make up most of the building material on this planet: simple, flat, rectangular cells. The work resides in the theory of fractal geometry, which is grounded in self-similar forms multiplied ad infinitum. It intends to step back from the human viewpoint to a more universal approach to matters.

From this base I’d like to bring attention to the fact that many people have lost the ability to separate their observation from their preconception. I try to alter daily perspectives in such a way that the expectation of what you see is (literally) broken into pieces. 

My work blurs the edges between the depicted scene and the world in which the artwork is being displayed. Placing all these layers in the same level, drawing one world into the other, the intention is to make reality look a bit more fictional and the depicted slightly more real.
