Sanne Rietveld

Sanne Rietveld is a contemporary visual artist working between Cornwall and Cardiff. Her fluid and experimental practice shows a fictional approach to real issues, aiming to unpick the complexities of the everyday through inventive imagery.

The fundamental themes of her work are human’s relationship to the environment, and the female psyche, influenced by her experiences as a young woman from a rural background. Her practice is collaborative in nature, and she is fundamentally concerned with creating provoking imagery through the use of metaphors and symbolism in her work.

Loud colours and intimate crops are defining characteristics of her practice and she often enjoys to pick at finer details, utilising colour analogue photography for its tonality and grain.
