Honorable mention | Life Framer Award: Urban Life 

Urban Erosion | Fortuna St, Budapest | 2017 | 50 x 50 cm

“Maarten’s composition is clean and simple – an exercise in restraint, distilling the geometry of this urban wall into something minimal and artful. Perhaps it’s a comment on impermanence – the inevitable entropy of life that slowly erodes at all of our man-made creations. Slowly everything becomes dust. For me, it channels other ideas too – the cracks remind me of the imperfections of marble, one building material traded for another. Or even an aerial view of the fissures through arctic ice, playing with our sense of scale. It’s a quietly powerful composition.”
