ARTIST STATEMENT

Looking at life, I see a pattern. A cycle of essential events, constantly repeating themselves. Like the pieces of a mosaic, being rearranged over and over again to create a bigger picture. A picture that inevitably falls apart as soon as you take a closer look at it. This dissolution is what we experience every day. The scheme of the world is too big for us to perceive. Larger than life, so to say. We are trapped in between elementary moments, unable to grasp their significance before they vanish. That is why the ability to capture such moments is what fascinates me. As a photographer, I collect these elements of reality wherever I can. I piece them together, waiting for the bigger picture to appear.   

BIOGRAPHY

Sterre Arentsen (1997) is a senior Crossmedia Design student at the AKI ArtEZ University of Arts in the Netherlands. Sterre uses photography to express her emotions which often have a melancholic undertone. β€˜β€™In random places, at random times, I see specific things that make me feel upset in a certain sorrowful, yet peaceful way.’’ Photography allows her to capture these brief moments, which often manifest themselves in objects that somehow come to life and carry an inexplicable loneliness within their appearance.
