Marcel Speet

Marcel Speet (Nederland, 1951) is een hedendaagse kunstenaar die in een breed scala van media werkt, waaronder werken op papier, fotografie, mixed media assemblages en installaties. De werken worden beïnvloed door een verscheidenheid van bronnen, beeld ervaringen, hedendaagse ontwikkelingen, natuur, architectuur, mode en eigen geschiedenis. Absolute onafhankelijke persoonlijke vrijheid als kunstenaar is een het grootste goed in mijn leven en werk. Wanneer chaos en verstoring in het werk voelbaar worden, zijn er nieuwe dimensies in de buurt. Onderzoek door ontregeling, spelen en verwarren om tot nieuwe oplossingen te komen.

Marcel Speet (the Netherlands, 1951) Dutch multidisciplinary visual artist makes abstract art, rearrangements and installations, staged photography and assemblages. The works are influenced by a variety of sources, image and material experiences, developments in art history, nature, architecture, fashion, and own history. Research centers around giving form to processes of conscious sense of self and identity. The layers are meant to leave room for the viewer not knowing anymore where to look at in the work and let it go, while being present and active. When chaos and disruption in the work are present, new possibilities are near. Independent personal freedom as an artist is one of the main goods in his life and work. His challenge is to deal with confusion using material, texture and color, questioning dimensions by disrupting, playing and disordering to get new solutions.
