Omschrijving werk

Ciska de Hartogh, who studied 3D Monumental Fine Art in South Africa and The Netherlands, seeks to create works of art that are more than purely aesthetic shapes and streamlined forms. Her “social sculptures”, embody an idea, an underlying social issue affecting the general quality of life. Central to her work as a visual artist is her involvement with the world. More specifically, the question of how man relates to himself and to the world around him. De Hartogh's work is thematic, in which the subject is decisive for the visualization. Through her artistic expressions, she intends to address social issues, themes in which she is or has been personally involved such as poverty, illness, a sustainable society and nature, but also mental resilience, trauma processing and the question of how people deal psychologically with life experiences, positive as well as negative. If it is necessary to speak of a specific signature, then this is mainly determined by the content or the theme, in which Ciska searches for the most suitable visual form. As a result, there is a great diversity of visual forms in her works of art. De Hartogh’s work as “art activist” has initiated the Love Life Festival in The Hague and received considerable media attention. In 2013 De Hartogh launched a nature conservation interactive social sculpture project at the Museon in The Hague, in which she encouraged children to create “Art Goodie Bags” out of garbage recovered from the beach. This project is continued with the latest "social sculpture edition Nature Goodie Bags", held in October 2018 at the Kunst10Daagse Bergen aan Zee. In 2020.Ciska is invited to contribute with her artworks around AIDS at the 23rd International AIDS Conference in San Francisco USA. In 2010 Ciska was awarded The Green Apple Award by the University of California for an “Outstanding Contribution to a Sustainable Lifestyle”. Currently she is preparing new graphic oil paintings for her upcoming exhibitions.
