Sietske Feenstra - fine art

Tiptoe through a fleeting moment

In my work I am searching for different experiences with the fleeting nature of time.

Time often feels like our enemy, a fate we have no control over. Still time is always here amongst us. It is the space we create for her, the face we give her. Our experience of her presence.

 

My work is my effort to fight time's grip, to silence her by searching for a slower way of experiencing. These moments that can feel short, unnoticed, vulnerable. Like a figure caught in a moment unaware of himself, a businessman daydreaming. This is how I experience these moments, as fragile and vulnerable, like a thin surface of ice that I walk on with careful concentration. Afraid to break the moment, but at the same time driven by my desire to immerse myself in it.
