Beeld 1 / 4   'C', 2012, oil on canvas, 40 x 30 cm

Sanne Rous wants to sense the world around us. To hold on to a moment, catch it, and to find beauty in the inability to do so. There is no hierarchy. Fragments are floating and bending in a limitless space of becoming. She picks them up and they will have to find their own logic – like a fossil which is a trace, but never a copy.
