Wendy van Boxtel
Reception: Thursday, February 18, 2021, 6-8 PMInquire
Wendy van Boxtel is a multi-media artist with professional experience in the fields of graphic design, mural painting, arts education, and sculpture. Currently based in Virginia, van Boxtel grew up in the Netherlands where she began her arts education.
Van Boxtel’s work deftly combines painted optical illusion on sculpturally rendered body fragments, visually and physically stretching the boundaries of an artwork vertically installed on a wall. The sculptures play with depth perception using repetitive patterns, such as polka dots, and sculptural components to build off the wall and create the illusion of components receding into the wall.
