full circle

Opening Hours
Tuesday - Saturday, 10.00am - 6.00pm
Sunday - 10.00am - 1.00pm

As well as being a natural, physical phenomena, the circle is a universally transcendent symbol. With no beginning or end, its simplicity is often used to represent totality, wholeness, original perfection and the infinite. 

With increasing consumption threatening our environment, and being passionate about sustainability, van Duijnhoven and van Hulle also go Full Circle by giving new life to objects and materials that have already had a use and a history. The re-use of objects is an important contribution to extending the life-cycle of materials. As individuals can we really make a difference? Is it still possible to free ourselves from the shackles of materialism and achieve a minimal life?

Big teeth! A ridiculous pompadour! Devious eyes and full lips! The Big Teeth x Petals exhibition showcases peculiar character designs presented in a myriad of decorative ways, that you can look at with your very own eyeballs!* The works celebrate the strangeness of the modern person by translating the broad personalities of the community into vibrant creatures to visually delight and tickle your humor thingy.

Works will range from oil paintings to digital prints and more. Purchasable art will be available from as low as $5, up to original oil painting prices.
