During the exhibition together with DeSimoneWayland, Servaas Roelandse is showing his latest series The Eye of the Beholder. Ceramic mobile phone covers, painted with just one topic: the news of today.
The smartphone has become an essential part of our daily lives. It has become the icon of the times in which we live. Not only news and messages appears on the screen, the phone itself can produce news. More often the phone is the first witness of the most terrible events, and generates our view and our news.
The covers are painted in different layers of glaze. In this way they get an own identity. The glaze gives Servaas Roelandse the opportunity to combine his drawings and his 3 dimensional works.
