Inherently intimate through their nature as handmade drawings, Riette Wanders’ pieces are monumental in size and impact while retaining their personal nature. By binding herself to a single medium, drawing, and a set of rules about abstraction, colour, and lack of dimensionality; Wanders is able to create playful and quirky works full of movement. Her pieces are inspired by music, and are rhythmic drawings that dance and sing with their audiences.
Born in 1966 in Rhenen, Netherlands, Wanders now lives and works in Amsterdam. She is currently a teacher at the Rietveld Academy.
