Emerging Artist 2013: Ann Van Hoey – Mechelen, Belgium

 

The simplicity and clarity of Ann Van Hoey’s work—both in process and in the finished, seemingly weightless forms—are the equivalent to a whisper with the authority of a shout. The incisions and folded walls create unexpected but precise shapes that are quiet and unassuming while maintaining a sense of energy and movement. Their bold, saturated colors are the perfect compliment to a delicate structure.
