Maria Bemelmans

My visual art is characterised by my fascination of combining philosophy, pedagogy and architecture. The contemporary works are multidisciplinary, experimental and multi-layered. Both in the use of materials and in the meaning. Besides GLASS, metal, stone, objects from nature and other materials such as light, sounds and smell are used. Multi-disciplinary cross-over stratification and networking on different levels is the common thread in installations, sculptures, assemblages, objects, drawings, paintings, photographs, poetry, performance and video. A form of communication that touches the world of experience and can evoke memory and emotion. Studies: Master of Arts [MA] in European Arts&Culture at Montfort Art University Leicester -UK, at Fontys University of Professional Education Tilburg -NL, and at Universidad Del Arte Granada -ES. Lecturer visual arts&design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht -NL. Studied architecture & art, Institute for Architecture&Art Maassluis -NL. Bachelor [BA] Pedagogy Science-Philosophy at the University of Nijmegen -NL. [BA&MA] Glass art at the State Institute for Glass and Krafts Mechelen -BE. Lives and works in Doenrade, the Netherlands.
