Featured Works: Jolanda Drukker Murray
Gallery Window Display April – September 2021
For Jolanda Drukker Murray, people in all their guises are an important source of inspiration for her work as a sculptor. Through various journeys to Africa, she came under the spell of this continent. First made in clay, soon figures in concrete, wood and bronze were to follow. The Odyssey and other myths are also central in her work, like in the ‘Vogel-, Konings- and Ramsvrouwen’. Nature is another recurring source of inspiration, as in her piece “Mossels” from the series “Frames of Nature”. In these works, Jolanda delves into the appearance of mussels. In the form she expresses the influence of high and low tide, and in the color she shows the day and night rhythm of mussels.
As a designer of ceramics, Jolanda is inspired by whatever she comes across during her travels. The worn-out bowls and saucers she saw in Africa and India, with holes in them as in colanders, were her examples in the series “Home Made”.
Her work is regularly shown in exhibitions and was included in several domestic and foreign collections.
