“Suus Baltussen is a variables person that in a playful and positive way looks on life and the world. She tries to enlighten the heavy parts of life and to look upon it from another angle. She uses various materials for her themes, often to portray them in a poetic way. The results are fragile organic structures, but also monumental solid images of wood, metal and bone.
Recurring themes are ‘Connection and Encounter’
Durability and recycling are aspects which are important and repeated. Suus Baltussen regularly uses waste materials, from which whole new objects start to come into excistence. The ’Cast Away’ objects are redeemed into something new and in this way are revalued.
