About the artist, VanDerBeek Johannes
Johannes Vanderbeek (born 1982, Baltimore, Maryland) is an American contemporary artist currently living and working in New York City.
Johannes VanDerBeek examines notions of time, transformation, and dreams in his sculptures, installations, and 2-D works. VanDerBeek avoids a personal or “signature” style, instead using unconventional mixed-media and eclectic installations to create layered sequences of allegory that encourage viewers to consider (and re-consider) the ways in which material qualities can become condensed and distorted over time. His work has been exhibited in several exhibitions in Europe and in the USA.
