In her artwork, Stef Kreymborg investigates the interplay between individuals and the masses.
The order found in nature, which fits together so marvellously in patterns and endless variation, is a great inspiration in her work.
With changes in the climate and all the consequences of these, forms of growth are taking on an increasingly important role in Kreymborg’s work.
Growth forms that flourish in the protected indoor environment, with no shortage of water or food, nor an overdose of moisture and sun.
Sometimes abstracted into forms that are nearly mathematical, but others burst in furiously, unruly and uninvited.
She explores the tension between uniformity and diversity, between order and confusion, between symmetry and asymmetry, as nature has been doing for centuries.

Art that connects
Feico Hoekstra, art historian
‘Artists seek contact with the viewer by conveying a particular vision, experience or fascination. What makes Kreymborg’s art so special is that she also gives expression to the concept itself. How literally she sometimes interprets this is revealed in her work Six Degrees of Separation (2013). The source of inspiration for this work is the eponymous theory. According to this theory developed by scientists, each person is only separated from anyone else on earth via a social network of a maximum of six contacts. In Six Degrees of Separation Kreymborg illustrated this theory by shaking hands with people around her while holding pieces of clay in her palm. The form that the clay took on placed between the hand-shakers concretely represents the contact between herself and the other, and via that other person, ultimately the entire world population. She then constructed a closed chain – the quintessential symbol of eternal connectedness – from all the separate pieces of clay.’
