Bio

Rosemary Niehaus, grew up in-between the Alps and the Low-Countries. The big contrasts in these landscapes and also the cultures always fascinated her, not only their differences but also their resemblances. In her work Niehaus explores these opposites that mark her life. Led by a strong inner feeling of displacement and her ongoing quest for belonging, she wanders through landscapes, urban surroundings, and history. Guided by her memories and her strong connection with nature she (re)captures atmospheres and feelings within different mediums, that are combined with found objects and natural elements. The often fragile pieces are arranged very carefully in an open though slightly narrative way, giving them a sacred status.
