HUID (Skin) was the inspiration theme and the name of a group exposition from the Beroeps Kunstenaars Wageningen (Association of Artists Wageningen). In this exhibition, the artists were asked to shed light on the theme based on their own medium. Petra thought of skin as seen through a huge magnifying glass. She combined this idea with the language we use to express different types of skin.
Resilient Skin is one of this series of sculptures. In Dutch ‘resilient’ translates into ‘veerkracht’. ‘Veer kracht’ has in the Dutch language another meaning. Literally one could translate it as ‘power of a spring’. This word became her inspiration for this sculpture.
The size is 37 x 18 x 15 cm.
