Driaan Claassen
Lives & Works in Cape Town, South Africa
For Driaan Claassen, manipulating the physical world has psychological implications. Through the abstracted forms his sculptures take, whether solid or fractal, geometric or organic, he reflects on the structure of the human mind and thought. He explores the intersection of our consciousness with the outside world, where light and dark meet, positive and negative space, the defined and amorphous, and order and chaos. Claassen has created a visual language that juxtaposes shape, colour, texture, and pattern to offer insight into his search for self-knowledge. Claassen’s work has been exhibited locally and internationally, including at Design Miami, Design Miami/Basel, GUILD Design Fair, PAD London, and Intersect Chicago.

Driaan Claassen will be presented by THK Gallery.
