Suzanne Jongmans is a photographer and textile artist. She was born in Hoeven, the Netherlands and from 1996 until 2000 she went to the Academy of Visual Arts in Tilburg, where she graduated in Textile Design and Photography. She won a student design prize for her debut installation, ‘My skin, my scars’. Jongmans lives and works in Breda. She has multiple solo- and group exhibitions to her name. Her work refers to the ‘old masters’ such as Rembrandt, Holbein de Jongere and Rogier van der Weyden. Her work is interdisciplinary; she has retained a theatrical element in her work and her multi-media processes and productions now define her as a seamstress, pattern cutter, creator of sculptural forms, designer of costumes and a photographer who compresses images from their third dimension to the flat print. Jongmans uses different varieties of packing foam and found materials for her creations, “making something out of nothing” to change our look on reality.
