Kaat Stieber  blends modern surrealism with Dutch renaissance art in her images. Employing a broad set of creative skills – including an internationally acclaimed background in theatre and costume design – her photos are a display of keen cultural awareness and craftsmanship

een beeldend kunstfotograaf die moderne surrealisme harmonieus vermengt met de Nederlandse renaissance kunst in haar beelden.

Kaat Stieber staat erom bekend dat al haar stillevens symbolisch zijn, maar ze worden altijd met een lichte en vrolijke aanpak benaderd. Hier wordt het speelse en het diepzinnige moeiteloos gecombineerd, waardoor het kunstwerk uitnodigt tot een glimlach en tegelijkertijd tot diepere overpeinzing.

In de afgelopen jaren zijn haar kunstwerken wereldwijd tentoongesteld en hebben ze talrijke prijzen en onderscheidingen gewonnen.

pecker

A pecker doesn’t stay within the lines of a frame; it breaks them, bit by bit, as a symbol of freedom and adventure.

In a limited edition, he remains uniquely within it each time, for he consistently discovers a different escape route from his frame

blackbird

Blackbird singing in the dead of night 

Take these broken wings and learn to fly

All of your life

You were only waiting for this moment to arise

poppy

The season of poppies casts a red glow over our Dutch landscape, and that makes me happy. Even more beautiful are the shapes of poppies about to bloom. In such a lovely flower, you’d want to nestle, wouldn’t you?

eye in the sky

I am the eye in the sky
Looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules
Dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind

stormy weather

A leaden sky, characteristic of the Dutch seaside. The ocean is never still, and yet there is a certain tranquillity about it. A strange thought perhaps, but this seems like a beautiful place to scatter the ashes of a loved one. To release them out to sea, while keeping them tied to home.

The Dive

One, rather extreme, tradition in the Netherlands is a mass dive into the icy sea on the morning of 1 January. This work was inspired by the cleansing quality of the New Year’s dive; letting go of the dark clouds of the past year and diving into the deep waters of the next – into the unknown.
