Tjitske Oosterholt (1991, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) has moved from graphic design and artistic research into a more in-between state of creative practice, where she aims to combine both intuitive and experimental visual imagery mainly through the use of photographic techniques, with research on our experience and perception of the world. With a growing desire to contribute to a more sustainable, circular and responsible approach to art practice, Tjitske’s interest in the transience of the natural world and our relationship to it is taking a centre stage in all creative explorations.

Autonomous Rephrase
        ‘Rephrase’ is a small collection of collages made from failed Toyobo prints, by means to make use of as much of my materials
as possible, and turn what would usually be seen as waste into something valuable again. What is a stain on one print, can suddenly
become a beautiful part of a composition when rephrased within a new context.
