Artist Puts 1000s Of Glittering Gems On Floors, Walls, and People To Create Kaleidoscopic Mandala Art
Suzan Drummen, an artist based in the Netherlands, creates expansive art installations that use thousands of tiny dazzling crystals and other shiny objects to create elaborate textile and mandala designs.
Amazingly, Drummen doesn’t use a pre-made plan to create her unique designs. “I never have a plan for my installation artworks. The specific site guides me,” she told Irenbrination. “I check the light, the route of the visitors, the colors, the height, etc, on spot. The whole atmosphere actually guides me. Every space requires something else and the installation grows slowly.”
Drummen’s goal is to overwhelm the viewer with her colorful art; “From a distance, they appear clear and orderly, yet upon closer inspection, the eyes become disoriented by the many details and visual stimuli. That moment, of being able to take it all in or not, is explored, time and time again. The visual perception is challenged, requisitioned, and intensified.” She uses pins to affix the crystal in creating her unique art, chrome-plated metal, precious stones, mirrors, and optical glass that she uses to walls but lays these objects down freely on the ground.
