Mieke C.A.M. Teelen
Working in Amsterdam-Noord and living in Nigtevecht, The Netherlands.
In her work she analyses, modifies and structures photographic material, digitally or manually in order to understand the world. She often uses her own photographs or found footage as a platform to create new intriguing images.
She pairs the use of advanced digital technics with traditional painting, drawing and collage technics.
The main subjects in her work are nature and landscapes. For her, landscapes are the embodiment of the sublime and the human. In her opinion landscapes characterise our time, with strong connections to the past and the future; they give structure to the world.
