Els Kocken is fascinated by the power of change in perspectives. Curiosity about the potential of new insights, drive her to open up her own photographic images to new interpretations. Using acrylic, ink, pastel or oil paint in combination with her photographic images, these unsolicited interventions become an adventure. The energy coming from discoveries is a trigger to continue exploring new forms, light, colours or compositions.
For Kocken the power of change in perspectives was a guide to a life survival strategy: an interest in “no condition permanent”. She has seen worlds in a state of transition where little can be taken for granted. Kocken reflects in the section TRAPPED on the lack of power of change in perspectives. Well aware of hopes and fears around open-mindedness to “no condition permanent”, she explores how blocks in energy, could be the block to new developments.
