Fleur Kotten, born in 2000, Hoorn The Netherlands.
Lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands


Since childhood I have used art as a way of processing. When great events in my life unraveled, I escaped into a drawing, a pencil line or an idea. I have therefore always seen art as a way to explain the inexplicable, to process and place stimuli.


When my environment, my thoughts, feelings and the world around me become a starting point, possibilities become endless. The world is constantly changing and with it my art continues to develop.


I am always looking for an image that radiates harmony in a certain way, in form, color or rhythm. I am also fascinated by the tension between objective and non-objective images. These images come together in painting, illustration, lasercuts, installations and sculptures. I describe making art as "puzzling", I puzzle intuitively with separate images until I arrive at a composition that reflects my fascination!
