Antoinette Donkers-Dekker

I would describe my pieces as images of hope.

Dark and light, earth and heaven are central themes in my entire body of work, together with human emotion / my emotion. My pieces show my personal development, my search for God and for myself, my struggle and liberation.
In recent years, light has played a larger role in my work than before. The light grows and struggle and pain transform, while forms, which for a long time used to be figurative and expressive, are becoming more abstract. A balance develops between the dark and the light, a balance between earth and heaven.

MADREAEON, ILIVEMYLIFETREECYCLE
I am literally part of the recycle system, when I die, my body will be burned or decompose and live on as little particles in other things. I have also given life, which makes me part of the reproductive system. With the work 'MADREAEON, ILIVEMYLIFETREECYCLE' I made a portrait of myself as part of the recycle system and as a transferee of life. The posture of the woman is open, without a gene, the legs graceful like a Venus, the arms like branches of a tree. It is also like a blood vessel system, full of life.

Together 2
This piece is autobiographical and is a sequel to Together 1. In the piece Together 2 I bring two embryonal forms together. Together they take on a new shape, together they are a new whole. Creating this piece was transformative for me. Loneliness was transformed into something new, something that is good and pure and lighter. To emphasize the purity, I made the piece out of pure porcelain clay, which turns a beautiful white when fired. Working with porcelain is an intensive and time-consuming process. Porcelain is self-willed work with and requires patience and love. This fits in perfectly with the embryonal theme, as does the beautiful white colour.

Io, von Argos' hundert Augen überwacht
Eine dreiteilige Plastik mit einem Thema aus der alten griechischen Mythologie, welches auch für die heutige Zeit sehr zutreffend ist. Nachdem Io, vom ehebrechenden Zeus verführt oder vergewaltigt wurde, verwndelt der Göttervater diese, aus Angs vor seiner Gemahlin,in eine Kuh. Die gekränkte, eifersüchtige Ehefrau will nun jene schöne, weiße Kuh zum geschenk. Zeus erfüllt ihr den Wunsch, aber Hera hat nichts anderes zu tun, als sie an einen geheimen Ort zu verbannen und von ihrem hundertäugigen Wächter, dem Ungeheuer Argos überwachen zu lassen. Zeus bekommt ein schlechtes Gewissen und will Io helfen. Er begibt sich zum Götterboten Hermes,n verzaubert sich selbst in einen Specht und weißt ihm den Weg zur Nymphe Io. Hermes soll auf seiner Flöte spielen und zwar solange bis der gefährliche Wächter eingeschlafen ist. Im Anschluß soll Hermes das Ungeheuer töten. Was dieser auch befolgt und erledigt.

Changes 2010
Greenham Business Park, the former Royal Air Force World War Two airbase, Berkshire This is Changes by the Icelandic sculptor Gudrun Nielsen, a monumental piece that has just been unveiled at Greenham Common where US bombers used to land – you get the references just by looking at it. Since the Greenham Common women saw off the last of the Right Stuff in 1988 the trees have returned along with the birds and the rest of the flora and fauna, and the military buildings have either been demolished or converted by the Greenham Common Trust which now owns it. Nielsen won a competition along with the late Michael Kenny, but that was 12 years ago and while Kenny’s large geometric form, Broken Symmetry, was unveiled almost immediately by Ringo Starr (a Kenny fan and local resident), Gudrun’s was a little tardy in taking off, as it were............... 17.11.2010 / Simon Tait's Diary http://www.artsindustry.co.uk/features/simon-taits-diary/45

Remains
Remains is started as a small series of works, where found plastics were placed onto wooden boards. Those boards where used as antler boards and serve now as a way to showcase remains from modern worlds. In my work I tend to connect different themes and materials. I am intrigued by the diversity and interconnectedness of our world today. How whatever we do today, no matter how small or big, affects others on an immediate and global scale.

Bee Banana
Bienen und Kunst, muß das sein? Baumstamm und Bienen, waren schon immer eine Einheit. Kunst und Banane gehen seit Thomas Baumgärtel auch gemeinsame Wege. Damit auch im Öffentlichen der Raum für Kunst wegweisend wird, hier die Banane, dreidimensional. Und die Bienen. Sie bestäuben ganz nebenbei das Umfeld; eine Befruchtung, die wir uns auch von der Kunst wünschen.

Genesis. Thought.
Project “Genesis. Dances with shadows” scrutinize feelings, mind, mental and physical, material. To Imagine. To Understand. To Feel. To See. My task is not only creation art images as a combination of different materials (included but not limited by glass, metal, wood and stone) but to understand what is the cornerstone of our consciousness, what is The Genesis? Thought. Imagination as basement, a freedom to think and to learn. The only first way to self cognition is Thought!
