Hoxtown Gallery Presents: Refreshment Room x Lizette Schaap
Sustainability is a hot-topic: from the clothes you wear, to the food you eat, to the transportation you use. What we haven’t really stopped to think about sustainability in art. What does it mean for art to be sustainable? How does one explore the topic of sustainability through art? In collaboration with Refreshment Room, a co-creation based agency, Amsterdam artist and engineer Lizette Schaap has explored the social theme, alongside other topics like consumerism and the slow-living movement.
With her simple yet abstract, graphic and surreal photography, Schaap dives into the idea of excess with a minimalist perspective. The resulting contemporary photographs, with clean backgrounds and a central object of focus, are almost too perfect not to have been made specifically for Instagram.
The Hoxtown Gallery features works from local artists, changing up our exhibitions quarterly. Keep one eye open for many more galleries to come!
