about this work

Extra Nervous 12.11.03 is an adaptation of a digital drawing into mirrored plexiglass. Balancing on the edge between hard-edge abstraction and primitive figuration, this series of 11 unique compositions is based on vector diagrams Rozendaal uses as a starting point for the websites he is famous for. While the websites Rozendaal designs are animated, these compositions – due to their materiality – are not. Their reflective surfaces do play with the idea of movement though, so animation is still lingering below the surface.



The composition can be installed as a horizontal or vertical image – it’s up to the collector to decide how to present the work.

about Rafaël Rozendaal

Rafaël Rozendaal’s artistic practice comprises websites, installations, prints and writing. His work takes shape through a range of transformations – from movement into abstraction, from virtual into physical space, and from website to print – with all of them informing each other. All of his works have one thing in common: they stem from a fascination with moving images and interactivity in its most basic form.

Although Rozendaal is best known for his artworks in the form of websites, he sees no hierarchy between his websites and physical work. He says; “The experience that you have when you are at home using Abstract Browsing on your computer is as authentic as viewing one of the tapestries in a gallery. From my point of view: the Internet is like a waterfall, an exhibition more like an aquarium.”
