With her work, Elke Andreas Boon inquires what makes human beings human. The tension that exists between satisfying and avoiding social expectations. The individual choices towards the global world. After the beautiful, often sensual first impression that the works make, a reality slowly filters through and confronts the observer with a vague uncertainty about the absurdity of being human. The works do not offer solutions; the questions that she raises remain unanswered. However, the layers of meaning and nuances do pile up.
For Elke Andreas Boon, the artistic calling is a radical choice for freedom and a vow to remain unattached to social structures.
Her work witnesses a very personal sensibility, sometimes brutally direct, other times silently beautiful. The strength of her work lies in the integrity with which she communicates. Her refusal to give the viewer direction in any interpretation, forces everyone to seize the freedom to reflect on their own meaning.
