Netty van Osch
The Netherlands, 1962
There is one thing that permeates Netty’s work: games. You can see it in the construction and decoration of her images, the ingenious arrangement of her installations, and the ambiguous names and titles that she gives her work. A fascination for the interplay between the outside and inside world is the common thread. She certainly does not shy away from irony and humor. But the game is serious; dead serious when it comes to the games that people play.
Netty herself also plays a game with the spectator. Anyone who believes that they can casually view and assess her work is missing its essence. Curiosity is rewarded by glimpses into a rich inner world.
