When I work I am aware of the world of forms, but what I comes out of my hands has been transformed in rhythm, energy and feeling. This transformation feels like a spriritual experience. In the flow of working I play with space and balance. The energy translates easily into what I make. I enjoy the sensual and the majestic. I feel I tell of the journey of life, its women, its landscapes, its joys and its fears.
“Jouke Kruijer's work shows colour and light changing like the seasons of the soul.” (Peter Schenk-2005)
