Drawing influence from Optical Art and Colour Field Abstraction, Sanne Koelemij investigates collaged compositions; one where colour, material and shape are always in a state of flux. At the heart of these explorations is a curiosity with sentimental worth of materials, questions of value and an environmentally driven desire to produce finished work from the waste of her own practice. Her recent body of work is a response to collages made from her own studio waste; such as dried paint, paper offcuts and canvas scraps. Sanne completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Hons) at the Australian National University in 2015, and her thesis won multiple international awards. Her work was catalogue published in the 2016 China Academy of Art Survey on Experimental Painting. Sanne now resides in regional New South Wales and she has exhibited with renowned Sydney galleries such as Watters Gallery, May Space and Penrith Regional Gallery.
