Luna van der Straaten is an Amsterdam-based artist. Through a philosophical lens, she analyses religion, cultural histories, consciousness, spirituality, life and death, which became her most cherished sources of inspiration. The abstract and sometimes complex themes and narratives she draws from are translated into poetic and symbolic work. She tries to capture that feeling one cannot describe. In her work, one can recognise her fascination with and search into the unsettling unconscious that binds us as human beings, as well as the manner in which we diverge and never move away from nature. Her work consists of analogue techniques, under which etching, paint, inks, chalks and pencil. Experimenting with materials is central in Luna’s work. Often she lets herself be guided by them, by which the materials themselves become storytellers.
