Artist list

Karin Herwegh
Karin Herwegh (1968) lives and works like a hermit in the countryside of the Dutch province of Zeeland. Her background and attitude combine directness and simplicity with great imagination and poetry. She uses available materials and simple tools. This collection mainly features lime and beechwood which she has worked with a knife and then coloured with oil or paint. She strings individual forms together into necklaces, sometimes adding textiles or a colourful accent. Karin is moved and inspired both locally and globally: by people and animals close to home and by the world of ethnographic art. She weaves these inspirations into new stories that are personal yet universal, strange yet familiar.
