VIEW IN MY ROOM
My inspiration for this figure is a combination of Frida Kahlo mixed with African influences. I love rituals like the hairstyles of Frida and the habits of tribes. I hope i can bring my imaginary world closer to the viewer and wish that they make their own fairytale. I use as base the Barbiedoll but undo the head and put clay on it, although it is covered you can still recognize them but nowadays anybody can be in it, gender neutral. So it becomes a voodoodoll with a lot of personal belongings which are described in a small note stuffed in a small numbered pigeonring.

In my work as a visual artist I bring my fascination for rituals, my own collected parafernalia and love for an imaginary, self created, world together in the Collection Van Velzen. Collection Van Velzen is originated from a wish to summarise my objects. In this Collection you see my personal Wunderkammer, for example small sculptured figures decorated with inspiring items which I collected during my whole life. The Barbies which I use as a base for these objects are still recognizable despite the decapitation, so that everyone is able to identify in a personal way with these objects. As an artist I live to express myself through my objects, I create new worlds where reality and imagination blend seamlessly together. Collection Van Velzen combines my skills created during my education at the fashion academy, art school and my inexhaustible interest for detail.
