Dindi van der Hoek, artistname dindi. (1976, Gouda, The Netherlands) graduated in 1999 at the Willem de Kooning Art Academy Rotterdam.
By shooting and situating her photographic scenes partially under water, Dindi develops a unique and distinctive photographic oeuvre. The movements and reflections of water and the optical distortions water causes, are an important base in the search for her imaginary and visual language.
In the imaginary worlds she creates, the suggestive images evoke confusion despite the serene stillness.
Dindi: ‘In my work I try to capture and depict an inner landscape in an outer form, “the human being”. The “figures” are in a sense a kind of self-reflection.The water in my work sometimes tend to abstract forms within the figurative image, thereby giving the images a somewhat surreal and fairy-tale appearance. These new uncontrollable chapes water causes, free the image and helps me to visualize normally invisible complex signals, thoughts and emotions and capture them together in one image.
My work is a comprehensive circle of people, nature, balance and underlying dimensions between reality, dream, desire … and everything in between. A surrealistic biotope where “the cruel and the beautiful” unite.’
