Tijin Meulendijks

Tijin Meulendijks’s artworks combine environmentalism, eco-science, and contemporary art practice. He seeks to demonstrate the relationship between culture and nature. He recorded the growth and death by photography as well as let their growth marks on paper. The process is a significant part of his practice. The natural cycle was showing through his work. The transplant and reposition of organic material provoke a sensory experience for the audience.
I have just started using ephemeral materials as part of my work. Compare to Tijin’s practice; he works more from a botanist and eco-science point of view. My studio practice is a bit more about personal exploration, through the material, making, thinking to gain new knowledge about our living. Both of our practice involved a lot of observations, emphasizing natural cycles.
