Objects, fragments, revelations, accidents, jewels...
Anima, the body of work by Ruudt Peters creates an encounter with things that position themselves ambiguously between the natural and the artificial.
They resemble findings of a melted mineral realm, or capricious organic structures, like flowers with phallic pistils, or the pattern of a coagulated fluid.
Are they Objet trouvé or carefully designed artefacts? They can be interpreted in both directions and at the same time they are neither one thing nor the other.
Ruudt Peters explores the unconscious territories of creativity in order to produce formless matter, defying intention, structure and taste.
