Major Project: Anneke Eussen



Anneke Eussen (1978, NL) lives and works in Vaals (NL)

Repurposing materials reshuffles their meaning, creating different angles to look through. Eussen considers the glass works as ‘Zeit-Zeichnungen’ (time drawings). The traces of humidity, rain, dust, rust create a unique appearance for every work. With only a couple of actions she brings a tension between materials, between controlled and uncontrolled action.

- Anneke Eussen, 2023




  • Her practice involves reusing found pieces of glass

  • Works often precariously hang - seemingly floating - play with time and gravity

  • works are very spatial, sculptural and reference architectural elements such as archways, doorways, fixings etc.

  • Drawing is also a key aspect of her practice - it will definitely be useful for me to centre drawing within my work - using it to think through designs and plans for sculptures but also considering if I can further develop my drawings such as printing them, collages them or making more imagery from them. Edit: 29.08.2023 - this became very significant as my sketches became a key component of my publication - looking at how mark making and paper can be exploited for their material qualities - looking at the translucency of the paper, the flow of ink - how lines can be abstracted.

  • She creates very simplistic and peaceful imagery - very cool

  • Makes use of the subtle difference in colouration - this contrasts well with the clean and crips Perspex frames that the objects are held in

  • She is described as compiling found glass panels sourced from buildings and automobiles into glass assemblages
