ADRIAAN REES
Bio
CV

Adriaan Rees currently lives and works in Amsterdam. Rees is famous for his large-scale projects and assignments for public space. He makes sculptures and installations in many materials such as ceramics, bronze, glass, textiles, plaster and stone. He also works with photography and video. When he works with clay, traces of his hands and the use of strong power can easily be seen on the surface. He approaches his sculptures almost as a landscape or a human body, sometimes in a sensual, sometimes in a brutal way. He is an unpredictable, cosmopolitan artist, always bringing up new ideas and artistic approaches. His sculptures are revealing influences and connections to tradition and innovation, humor and seriousness, religion and war, fantasy and reality enabling the dialogue to flow between both cultures, the native and the adopted one. Adriaan Rees’s works can be found in private collections around the world, public spaces and museums: Stedelijk Museum Kampen, Museum Beelden aan Zee among others.
