Artist Carina Wagenaar studied at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Amsterdam. Her life-size medallions are intriguing objects. These unique works of art are inspired by cameos, small medallions, lace and relics and possess narrative symbolism. Expressions of feelings, thoughts and spirituality make up these 3-dimensional stories. She also translates the combination between history and current events in the world in these great works.
Telling stories, creating new worlds and surprising people is something she likes to do. All our abundance of objects act as raw materials for a new detailed story behind semi-spherical acrylic glass. Her vision on the importance of details can be seen in every work she creates in which she combines nostalgic feelings with both classic and modern, playful and tough elements.
Her work is internationally appreciated and in recent years has been shown in Milan, New York, Paris, London, Florence, Dubai, Antwerp and various places in the Netherlands.
