Breasts, silver mushrooms, a melancholy fir tree, giant slippers, a water tower with a crazy red wig, pricks dangling from a string, milk jugs: these are a few of the ten works that Maria Roosen has personally selected for this book. From this subjective choice of ten works emerges a fabric of visual and textual narratives about their genesis, links with other work, pendants, associations, sources, ideas and mentality. This large book Monster connects these key works and threads with one another with a profusion of full page images of Roosen’s work and texts by Hanne Hagenaars and Wim Van Mulders.
Maria Roosen (Oisterwijk, 1957) lives and works in Arnhem, makes art from very small to very big, has shown her work in various museums in the Netherlands and abroad, works regularly on commissions for public space, and was awarded the Wilhelmina Ring for the best sculptor in the Netherlands in 2006.
