Interview Excerpt:

In art there is a balance between knowing the artist’s intentions and the freedom to interpret art freely and through the lens of our own experiences. Perhaps in figurative work the desire to narrate is stronger, which is why Annelies Heijnen’s work begs the question: “Can you tell me the story?”


But if asked, Annelies Heijnen hesitates to reveal the thoughts and stories going through her mind while making each sculpture.


“I like people to interpret their own story. I spend two weeks on the drawing, and in that time you build your own story. But it is good that you don’t know. Knowing you take away the fun of the piece. Then you don’t have discussion, because you already have the answers. And maybe they aren’t your answers.”
