Tonneke Sengers ( 1959, Breda) lives and works in Haarlem. Sengers studied monumental design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam where the connection between art and architecture, was the main theme. Her murals and wall sculptures are engaged in a dialogue with the space around. Sengers works with minimal means: lines, screens and squares with which optimum three-dimensional effects are created. This abstract geometrical language can be applied on every scale without losing power. Sources of inspiration are found in the environment, especially there, where the contrasts between open and closed spaces are the most striking, on a scale from window envelopes and holes in ring binders to buildings she passes by train or by car. Tonneke Sengers exhibits her work at home and abroad.

Mobile murals 'Up the Wall'/ (22a-f)*

Since 2010 Tonneke Sengers is working on 'mobile murals'. Tonneke Sengers: 'I found a way to make mobile works, which are very close to the design of my murals'. The design of this wall sculptures 'Up the Wall' is first drawn on the computer and then carved in aluminium by a laser cutter. The open-worked aluminium is giving an important role to the wall behind and the space between them. Composition and colour are accurately defined to bring forward the intended dialogue between illusion and reality. The counter-shape becomes an interval in which the effects of Sengers interventions resonate. They form, indirectly, a new and often surprising reality. It looks like Sengers' work is coming to you in two ways. You have the idea of being able to decipher something and at the same time you can disappear without effort in the space the work displays to you.
