Ilumination I

About this work

The fragile two-dimensional work is experienced as a weightless sculpture, almost as a “bas-relief” that wants to detach itself from the wall. Due to the transparency of the silk fabric, the object vibrates and mixes with the space. The play of light and shadow changes continuously and influences the moment of viewing.

The calm use of colors is usually soft, pastel-like grounded and fluctuates silently on its own way.

Trui Demarcke

Trui Demarcke (° 1962, Belgian, living in Zele, BE), studied Sculptural Ceramics at Sint-Lucas in Ghent (BE) and afterwards Industrial Textile Design in Courtrai (BE). She afterwards founded the « FIL & BAUKIS » label, known for its exclusive silk and knitted scarves. She combined this professional activity in the last decade with a career as an artist. After several solo and group exhibitions, she made the artist’s book « Tsimtsoem », from chaos to order, a creation story in 24 images. Multimedia artist Trui Demarcke starts her visual work from the basic element of light. The light is for her a space that she delimits with “matter”, which in turn becomes a carrier of energy and information. In the accumulation of materials and meanings that may or may not vibrate in harmony, her creations start to get slowly a certain shape. Material is applied, removed again, leaves a shadow of the previous operation. In this way the artist wants to make the process of creation tangible and visible in its final phase. The concept of “Tsimtsoem” – the limitation of infinite space – is an idea that the artist likes to adhere to in order to transform chaos to order.
